According to The Guiness Book of Recorded Sound by Robert and Celia Dearling (1984), the "Decca" trade name was first used in 1914 for a portable gramophone manufactured by Barnett Samuel and Sons Ltd. The machine was called the Decca "Dulcephone" and many of them were used in the trenches by British soldiers in World War I. The origins of the word "Decca" are described as "lost." The Decca Record Company began producing recordings in England in 1929. The American Decca label dates from 1934. Edward Lewis, who bought Barnett Samuel in 1929, was chairman of British Decca until his death in 1980. "Half a century ago, there was a programme broadcast every Sunday afternoon from Radio Paris preceded by a call sign played on tubular bells or vibraphone--a five note phrase on the notes D, E, C, C and A, in that order. There followed a show involving sixteen of the latest records isued by the newest arrival in the British gramophone industry, the Decca record company." This would tie in with the original Decca logo, which was a musical stave with a treble clef and the notes D, E, C, C and A written in crotchets with the letters underneath to spell that magic word, followed by another treble clef. This is interesting but does not help to find were the word came from (unless the fanfare was behind the invention of the word, but I think the fanfare came from the already thought up name). But, I now quote from the last paragraph of Rust's article revealing all that he knows of the origination of the word: "To this day, no-one seems to know what the word Decca means, if anything. We might well shrug and ask, 'What's in a name?' In the case of Decca, the answer seems to be, 'As a word, nothing; as a record label, quite a lot'" The trademark DECCA was made up by Wilfred S. Samuel of Barnett Samuel and Sons, in 1914, when he patented the newly invented portable gramaphone. He told me that he wanted a word for exports, which be could easily recognised by illiterates and which would have the same pronounciation in all languages. It seems to have been a merger of MECCA with the intial D of their logo "Dulcet" or their trademark "Dulcephone." Decca was originally a company that started off distributing musical instruments and manufacturing watches and steel pens. Several times they tried getting into the record business (which even included the launch of a portable gramophone called Decca), but the year 1928 saw the record company getting its feet off the ground. Some years after this, the American division of the label was founded by a man named Jack Kapp, but the only difference was that the American Decca label was more pop-based than its parent. Its artists throughout the years included Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, Danny Kaye (the American comedian and singer who recorded a transatlantic version of the Lord Chancellor's nightmare song in Iolanthe) and the Andrews Sisters (who inspired the "Three little maids" sequence in the Hot Mikado spin-off on the most popular G and S opera.) In the USA the British Decca recordings were distributed by London Records. In Britain the original Decca label concentrated more on classical recordings despite some pop forays, with a golden age of recordings coming after the introduction of stereo. This was the time of fruitful contracts with Pavarotti, Solti, Sutherland and of course D'Oyly Carte. The Beatles auditioned for Decca on January 1st 1962. In one of the most embarrassing business decisions in music history Decca rejected the band, on the grounds that guitar music was "on the way out". The American division of Decca dissolved itself in 1973 after it was purchased by MCA Communications Group. This incorporated the Decca recordings into the MCA catalogue.
