Melodisc Records was a record label founded by Emil E. Shalit in the late 1940s. It was one of the first independent record labels in the UK, and the parent company of the Blue Beat label.

History[edit]

The label was founded by Austrian-born American citizen Emil Edward Shalit (24 December 1909 – 23 April 1983). It is unclear whether Shalit set up Melodisc initially in New York[clarification needed], where he lived.[1] Melodisc began trading in London in August 1949,[2] and soon became established as one of the first—and, at the time, the largest—independent record labels in the UK.[1] Its offices were in Earlham Street, Covent Garden.[3]

The company was initially managed in London by Jack Chilkes, until a disagreement with Shalit led to his departure and legal action in late 1952.[2] According to Chilkes, Shalit had tricked him into believing that he owned the rights to material owned by other companies.[4] In the early 1950s Melodisc focused on licensing and releasing American jazz and folk records in the UK, and had a production and distribution arrangement with Decca Records. After Chilkes was replaced by Trinidadian Rupert Nurse, who became Melodisc's musical director,[5] the label also released rhythm and blues, and West Indian and African recordings including calypso and mento, so as to cater for the growing Afro-Caribbean community in Britain.[6] Early Melodisc releases in the UK included 78 rpm and later 45 rpm records, EPs and LPs, by Big Bill Broonzy, Louis Jordan, Josh White, Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, and Charlie Parker, among others.[7][8][9]

From the early 1950s, Melodisc started recording musicians in London, particularly at the Esquire studios in Bedford Court Mansions in Covent Garden.[2][5] Early recordings were supervised by Denis Preston.[2] Among the musicians recorded were Jamaican-born jazz musician Joe Harriott, pianist Russ Henderson,[5] and the Trinidadians Lord Beginner and Lord Kitchener, whose song "Birth of Ghana" was recorded in London in late 1956. Melodisc was actively involved in exporting records from Britain to the emerging record-buying markets in West Africa and the Caribbean.[1]

From the mid to late 1950s it also sought out records produced in Jamaica, for distribution in Britain, making deals with producers such as Coxsone Dodd and Duke Reid.[10] Melodisc released Laurel Aitken's "Lonesome Lover" in the UK in 1960.[11] Following its success, Shalit employed Sigimund "Siggy" Jackson to set up a subsidiary label, Blue Beat, focusing on Jamaican blues and ska music.[10] For several years the label name became synonymous with Jamaican music in the UK, and became associated with the mod and later skinhead sub-cultures of the 1960s and early 1970s.[6][11]

In 1966, Melodisc set up a new sub-label, Fab Records, to release rocksteady music. The Melodisc label continued to release LPs through the 1960s and into the early 1970s. Artists included Prince Buster, Ambrose Campbell, Ginger Johnson, Ravi Shankar, and Lord Kitchener.[9]

Emil Shalit died in Slough, England, in 1983 at the age of 73.[12]

Jubilee 2502: "Where Could I Go But to the Lord" / "God's Amazing Grace". The discography goes on to say, however, that the Jubilee records were never issued.

Depicted (left) is the Trinidad septuagenarian Brylo Ford (cuatro – a small four-string ukulele-like guitar of Venezuelan origin) and Fitzroy Coleman (guitar); the latter performer arrived in the UK from Trinidad in 1945 with ‘Al’ Jennings’ All-Star Caribbean Orchestra. A multi instrumentalist, Ford came to the UK in the 1920s. He also played double bass and flute and sang under the sobriquet of "Le Duc" or The Duke".

  • 1139 "Linstead Market" / "Bongo Man" [MEL 28/MEL29] – Louise Bennett, The Caribbean Serenaders feat. Leslie Hutchinson, tpt (This is one of the earliest recordings of Jamaican tunes recorded by a Jamaican performer, and also one of the very few calypso recordings by a woman. Louise Bennett recorded these two tunes in late 1950 (just prior to the beginning of Stanley Motta's MRS label), backed by the Caribbean Serenaders. The tunes are "Linstead Market" (described on the label as Jamaican Rhumba) and "Bongo Man" (Jamaican Christmas Song). There are some excellent jazzy instrumental solos on trumpet, clarinet and alto sax in addition to Louise's vocals.}

Hayes specialised in old English folk songs and ballads such as "From Priggs that Snaffle the Prancers Strong" and "The Ratcatcher's Daughter". He sang to his own guitar accompaniments with an easy charm that came strongly over the microphone. After making his radio debut on Children's Hour, Hayes occupied the guest star slot on every major radio variety show including In Town Tonight, varietyWorkers' Playtime, Variety Bandbox, Terry-Thomas's Top of the Town and Eric Barker's Just Fancy. He occasionally presented Housewives' Choice; and on Children's Hour he sang Edward Lear's nonsense rhymes. Hayes's version of "The Owl and the Pussy Cat" was recorded by Parlophone and became a regular item on Children's Favourites. In 1954 he was given his own series Elton Hayes - He Sings to a Small Guitar, a misquotation from "The Owl and the Pussycat" that became his catchphrase. This was followed by Close Your Eyes, a late-night "bedtime" programme of light music, and Elton Hayes in a Tinker's Tales, in which Hayes, as an itinerant tinker, narrated a story which a cast of actors then dramatised as a musical play. Hayes also wrote the music and songs for the series. This is one of his rarer really charming early folk 78s recorded before his famous Parlophone "hits".)

Arthur Rank film Operation Amsterdam (featuring Peter Finch, Eva Bartok and Tony Britton): "Pierement Waltz" and "Amsterdam Polka". These were both released on a 45 rpm record by Melodisc which, I seem to recall, was only available by mail order and was encapsulated in a nondescript brown paper sleeve. The organ on the soundtrack is "De Cello" and, in response to a query by myself, Rein Schenk posted a very interesting reply in MMD of 030325. A picture of the organ can be found in the book Draaiorgels by the late Romke De Waard. http://mmd.foxtail.com/Archives/Digests/200309/2003.09.15.01.html]
