Vox Firmengeschichte/Vox company history (Originally published in Der Schalltrichter, Nr.19, Mai 2002, pp.1-7).

The following master discography was originally compiled by Rainer E. Lotz as a downloadable htm.file. Claus Peter Gallenmiller developed a data base for the Vox complete numerical listing (pdf.files). We apologize for potential discrepancies between the listings, as they may represent different stages of updating ...
Vox complete numerical listing (pdf.files):

Around 1926/27 the Vox company also briefly marketed cheap unbreakable discs, bearing the rubber stamp information: "Pat. Syst. Kalophon-Record A.-G. Zürich"

Please note that the distinction between A- and B-sides is fictional - the actual records bear no side identifications. Further explanations:

M = Musik, music or composer
T = Text , lyrics or lyricist
NE followed by month/ and year = Neuerscheinung, date of first release
K = Katalog, catalog in which the item was listed

Prefix "0"     (catalog number) = denotes a 30cm disc, sometimes an asterix "*" is used instead
Suffix "-A"   (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-AA" (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-B"    (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-BB" (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-C"   (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-D"   (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-E"   (matrix number) = denotes a 15cm acoustic recording, not a take
Suffix "-F"   (matrix number) = denotes a 30cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-G"   (matrix number) = denotes a 25cm electric recording, not a take
Suffix "-Z"   (matrix number) = denotes a 15cm acoustic recording, not a take

Prefix "K-"  (matrix number) = denotes a 15cm acoustic recording

 

The first take is identified by a plain matrix number
The second take is identified by "-1", or sometimes "-½"
The third take is identified by "-2", and so on
