Introductory notes:
The GHT (Gesellschaft für historische Tonträger, Society of  Historical Recordings, Vienna, http://www.phonomuseum.at/) regularly conducts conference meetings of international discographers and serious record collectors. At the "9th Internationaler Diskografentag" (20-24 May 2008, Immenstadt, Germany) it was decided to focus on the hitherto neglected  “Lindström Story". This website is an attempt to provide an overview and rough dating table for all releases on the Odeon labels. Due to the complicated history of company mergers and corporate identities, this list also covers - at least for the time being - labels that were independent until bought by Lindström (International Talking Machine Company), and labels that were controlled by EMI London, after they acquired Lindström.

Thus, the attached overview is very much "work in progress" and will eventually be straightened out. The setup is as follows

Catalog numbering block - Category or Prefix - Country or Language - Diameter (cm) - Date/Years - Country where pressed (licence plate abbreviations) - Colour of Label - Comments

Information such as label colours can often only be derived from physical autopsy of the artifacts. The present overview uses colour identifications that need to be standardized (especially: brown, red. red-brown. brown-red, maroon, violet, lilac). As well, prefixes are not always shown on actual discs
