Cameo

1920 - 1928


Cameo Records was an American record label that flourished in the 1920s. It was owned by the Cameo Record Corporation in New York City.

Cameo released a disc by Lucille Hegamin every two months from 1921 to 1926. Cameo records are also noted for dance music. The catalogue also included the Original Memphis Five and the Varsity Eight.

In 1926, Cameo started recording using a microphone-electrical process.

The Cameo Record Corporation started Lincoln Records (1924) and Romeo Records (1926). In 1928 it merged with Pathé Records, and then the American Record Corporation. The resulting company stopped using the Cameo name in the 1930s.
