Romeo Records

Romeo was a 25 budget label produced by Cameo. It was originally for S. H. Kress & Co., which existed from 1896 to 1981 and was one of the largest dime-store chains in the United States. From 1926 to 1929 Romeo's output mirrored that of Cameo's. The American Record Corporation acquired them both in 1929 and masters were then used from its sources. ARC dropped Cameo in 1930 but kept Romeo going until 1938.
