Audio-Vox Sprachinstitut 25000-Series: Sprachkurse/Language Instruction Records

Around 1926/27 the Vox company also briefly marketed cheap unbreakable discs, bearing the rubber stamp information: "Pat. Syst. Kalophon-Record A.-G. Zürich"

Please note that the distinction between A- and B-sides is fictional - the actual records bear no side identifications. Further explanations:

M = Musik, music or composer
T = Text , lyrics or lyricist
NE followed by month/ and year = Neuerscheinung, date of first release
K = Katalog, catalog in which the item was listed

Prefix "0"     (catalog number) = denotes a 30cm disc, sometimes an asterix "*" is used instead
Suffix "-A"   (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-AA" (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-B"    (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-BB" (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-C"   (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-D"   (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-E"   (matrix number) = denotes a 15cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-F"   (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-G"   (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-Z"   (matrix number) = denotes a 15cm acoustic recording, not a take

Prefix "K-"  (matrix number) = denotes a 15cm acoustic recording

 

The first take is identified by a plain matrix number
The second take is identified by "-1", or sometimes "-½"
The third take is identified by "-2", and so on
