This Topic record discography was originally compiled by Mike Brocken, and all the more recent entries added by myself.  It has been significantly updated since initial publication, principally with the aid of Alistair Banfield.  I was unaware of it, but it appears that Alistair did much of the work on the original version, but he was not credited for it (except that he is the 'AB' mentioned where the existence of a disc is referred to), so I should here and now like to offer him my - our - thanks for all this useful information.  Notes in italics (below) are also by Alistair.

Matrix Numbers

These can be assigned to three sources.  CP was a series that Decca had taken over from the Crystalate company - it may stand for contract pressing.  XYZ was the prefix Decca used for Soviet matrices sent over from Russia for pressing from here.  The numerical part is usually the same as the original Russia matrix number (which was simply an unprefixed number).  The O series belonged to the Oriole label which belonged to Levy's Sound Studios who did their own pressing.


The Man Who Put The Water In The Workers' Beer (Paddy Ryan; arr Alfred Roberts). Paddy Ryan (of the Unity Theatre) with guitar accomp. CP 889. 1CS0020192.
The Internationale (Degeyter; arr. A. Bush). The Topic Singers & Band cond. Will Sahnow. CP 892.

Internationale 1b / Soviet Fatherland Song (Land of Freedom) TRC 1a. CP 989

Internationale / Salute to Life (English text by Nancy Head; music by Shostakovitch). Topic Singers & Unity String Orch. Arr. and cond. by Will Sahnow. TRC 1c. CP 983.
There appear to have been three versions.  On the 2nd record the Internationale was accorded the number 1b whilst on the other 2 records it just gets TRC 1.  We think that must be all of the variants.  We can guess that they were released in this order from the obvious clues.  The Internationale was obviously the most important song in the WMA's repertoire and this was a way of selling the 'hit song' with varying different songs. Thus on TRC 23 'The Internationale' was issued again, this time with 'The Red Flag'.
Fags Are Up (Arthur Pooley and Alfred Roberts). Recorded as a quick step with vocal verse and chorus. From the Unity Theatre revue 'Turn Up The Lights'. Topic Variety Chorus & Band. CP 888.

Every copy of this I have seen (at least 4!) has been issued with a plain white label with black lettering not with the WMA logo, it just says Topic on the top.  So this is universally the case, not just particular to the copy at the NSA.

All of the above are pre December, 1948 (Topic Song Book...see inside back page). Available records are up to but not including TRC23?

Vinyl and Post-Vinyl Shellac

It has been recorded (Topic cat, 1970s?) that TRC vinyl begins with 23.  The NSA copy of 23 is shellac.  Their copy of 24, however, is vinyl.  Shellac/vinyl is probably an option.  The NSA have only one Topic vinyl 78.  NB VWL?  Surely the copy at NSA is a reissue; Pye (& Mercury) vinyl 78s only begin circa ‘56.  Shellac versions of 25, 26, 64 and 96 have recently been reported by readers.

The above note is now demonstrably misleading or wrong because ALL 78s were SHELLAC apart from TRC 24 & TRC 23.  What is odd is that LATER when the label changed from WMA to TOPIC RECORDS, TRC 23 was reissued on Shellac.  So I'm going to be quite dogmatic here, there were only ever two 78rpm records issued on vinyl!  These were both issued in round about 1949 and the 'Deccalite' material was available at the end of the war so it is not incompatible with a vinyl 'unbreakable' disc being issued in 1949.

Moses of the Mail (English work song). Ewan MacColl with Al Jeffery. 13183.
The Fireman’s not for Me. Isla Cameron with Al Jeffery. 13184.
This should read "The Firman's not for me" (sic), although this is clearly a misspelling of the correct song title.  This song was also covered by Chas McDevitt and appeared on the New Briton Gazette.

On a huge number of these 78 releases there are errors in the spelling of people's names (and titles).  Ewan suffered from constant misspelling of his own name by the printers or the people at the WMA who didn't check how to spell it.  Margaret Barry had her name spelled "Barrie" on her Topic 78 release and Al Jeffery is variously spelled Al Jefferey, Al Jeffrey and the correct way.  Brian Daly had his name spelled variously Daly and Daley and Brian and Bryan.

TRL2 Possibly never issued.
However, a copy has turned up in the library of the University of Mississippi. The container is plain manila cardboard, without markings except for 'Aubrey Pankey' in magic marker.  The disc itself is 12 in. with what appears to be a hand-drawn label with 'Topic' and above it 'Workers Music Association London'.  The matrix number is RPL 625 and RPL 626, which is repeated on the label as 'Serial RPL 625-6'  The record number is TRL 2
However, again, the record was reviewed (albeit very scathingly), in the February 1955 issue of The Gramophone (suggesting a late-1954 release).  Thanks to Graham Gough for this information.  It's possible that the Gramophone review was of a pre-production tape or shellac, and the criticism, plus the fact that Topic already sold a few of Pankey's songs on 78s may have meant that it was not considered necessary or viable to gather together the 78rpm tracks on a 33 LP, as had been done with TRL 1.  Ewan MacColl & Isla Cameron were, after all, still popular.  There was not massive interest in Pankey, who was very much in Paul Robeson's shadow as a singer and performer.
Side 1 - Aria from Ivan Susanin – Glinka; Where e’er you walk – Handel; Leave me loathsome light – Handel; Sent to ja’gioja – Handel; Invocation to sleep – Tchaikowsky (sp.)
