1931 - 1939
Panachord was the label issued by the British branch of the Warner-Brunswick Company in May 1931. In the USA, the corresponding label was Melotone.
Recordings were mainly American, from Melotone and later ARC and Decca, but there were a few home-grown recordings, mainly done by U.K. Brunswick, specially for the label, then subsequently by Decca, again exclusively for Panachord, though one or two were also released on Decca as well.
The British company was taken over by Decca, and Panachord was discontinued in November 1939.
