Cristal-Electro (39)
"Cristal-Electro" (Кристал-Электро, с ударением на первом слоге) – частная фабрика граммофонных пластинок, основанная в 1931 году в Варшаве. Это была маленькая фирма, пластинки которой стоили дешевле, чем диски других марок; это было обусловлено тем, что в фирменной студии не записывались известные певцы-солисты (такие, как Мечилав Фогг, Адам Астон и другие). Кроме того, пластинки "Кристал-Электро" изготовлялись из материала низкого качества, из-за чего быстро приходили в негодность. ... [more]

The company was producing records initially under the label "Melodje", later under its name "Mewa". For more info and catalogues see Polish Wikipedia article.
Melodja (53)
Мелодия–Электро – дешёвая мутация “Сирены-Электро”. На её этикетках переиздавались старые матрицы, которые уже не печатались под стандартной этикеткой. Пластинки “Мелодия” были предназначены для продажи прежде всего в провинции; поэтому они были дешевле „Сирен”. Надо подчеркнуть, что технически они не уступали нормальным пластинкам.
