BUSY BEE
78 Record Listing

THIS IS FOR INFORMATION ONLY!

The Busy Bee line of phonographs and records introduced in 1904 by The O'Neill-James Company of Chicago, Ill.
Its name was a play on the name of executive Sherwin Bisbee. Their disc had a large rectangular slot cut in the lower label area to accept a lug on the Busy Bee turntable, a designed to ensure steady sales of discs to fit the nonstandard Busy Bee machines. Several suppliers were used, including Leeds & Catlin, the American Record Company, Hawthorne & Sheble, Columbia, and Universal (the Zon-O-Phone).

Most of the Busy Bee was a single-sided record. In late 1908 or early 1909, Leeds & Catlin produced a double-sided Busy Bee disc that is the rarest variant of this label. There is also a short-lived 12" series which is also rare.

Lacking a blank side on which to affix its condition-of-sales stickers, Leeds moved the information to a wide white ring surrounding the original label design. Leeds also produced several other double-sided brands before suspending operations in late 1909, including D&R (red label), National, and Peerless.
