Bingola Records was an American record label in the 1920s. Bingolas was manufactured by Grey Gull Records (Boston, Massachusetts) and is one of the most short-lived and therefor rarest labels produced.
The records were produced for the Bing Corporation of New York, the U.S. branch of the German Bing Werke company of Nuremberg, which in 1925 had introduced its own line of phonographs (the 'Bingophone').
The Bingola label was registred as a trademark in 1927 and seems to have been produced only shortly during this year and 1928. Known issues re-use ordinary Grey Gull masters, but the label's catalogue numbers (in a 1000-series) have no visible connection with the equivalent issues on the company's other labels.
