Vocalian Records


SKU: N/A Category:


Vocalian Records was founded in 1916 by the Aeolian Piano Company. The record label was bought by Brunswick Records in 1924. Robert Johnson’s “Cross Road Blues,” recorded in 1927, was a strong seller for Vocalian and went on to become a blues standard. During the 1930s, Vocalian was one of the most popular labels in the U.S. However, CBS bought American Record Corporation in 1938, and two years later Vocalian was discontinued and replaced with Okeh Records. A second incarnation of Vocalian appeared in the late 1950s by American Decca as budget label for back-catalog reissues. This incarnation of Vocalian ended in 1973. Notable artists: Robert Johnson, Jelly Roll Morton, Albert Ammons, Bumble Bee Slim, and more.
