Rex (UK)


Rex Records was a United Kingdom-based record label founded in 1933 by the Crystalate Gramophone Record Manufacturing Company, also the parent of British Imperial Records. Rex released their first disks in September 1933, with the initial release bearing a catalogue number of 8001. The company was taken over by Decca Records in March 1937. Rex Records were sold at the Marks & Spencer chain stores.

The label was discontinued in February 1948. In spite of War-time limitations, they had released approximately 2,250 disks.

This index includes all 2,500 (approx.) 10inch, double-sided 78rpm recordings released by this label between 1933 and 1948. Many thanks to Wes Williams and James Hayes for their work in presenting this index here…
