The Australian equivalent to the US Bell. Started life in Australa releasing singles on normal HMV & Festival 10Ē 78ís and Manhattan 78 EPís. When 45ís started Bell was released by Festival and some on HMV, then became independent. The records were pressed by various plants. Distribution remains a mystery. The label completely disappeared by 1964. Finding these records in good condition seems to be rare. The printed covers are extremely rare.
