'Brown eyes, why are you blue?' by the Mimosa Dance Orchestra
a 1920s sixpenny record from Woolworth's
Mimosa Records were sold in F.W. Woolworth & Co. Limited British Stores between 1921 and 1926. The rarest records are from the 'M' series and are 5½" in diameter and single-sided. These were tested and rejected in favour of a double-sided version, the 'P' series which was originally 5½" diameter, and later 6" from 1923. The records were produced for Woolies by the Crystalate Gramophone Record Company of Tonbridge, Kent.
They had greaseproof-bag style unprinted sleeves and retailed for sixpence.
