Zodiac 78 RPM's

1949 - 1958


Independent New Zealand label owned by Eldred Stebbing and his brother Phil Stebbing. The label began by releasing 78's in 1951 before shutting up shop in 1953 after Eldred and Phil had a falling out. It was revived again by Eldred in 1957. He continued releases of 78's during 1957 and 1958, before moving to 45 RPM's. The catalogue number started at Z 100 and went through to Z 150 by 1953. At the revival, the 78's recommenced at Z 1051, because the 45 RPM's had started at Z 1000 and some of these were also released on 78 using the same numerical part of the catalogue number. Refer Zodiac 45's for 78's released with catalogue numbers from Z-1001 to Z-1011.
