Velvet Tone Records


Velvet Tone Records

Velvet Tone Records was a United States based record label, active from 1925 through 1932. It was produced by Columbia Records and contained material identical to that of Columbia's two other low price labels, Harmony Records and Diva Records.

Audio fidelity is about average for the era (though most issues were still made by the then out-dated acoustic recording process), with pressings in below average quality shellac that shows significant surface noise after moderate wear.
