There was quite a lot of interesting Jazz issued, such as The Red Heads and The Original Memphis Five.
They were available from 1926 to about 1928, and used mainly (if not completely) English masters recorded in London.

Aco was a product of the Aeolian (subsequently Vocalion) Company Ltd at Aeolian Hall, Bond Street, London.
It was aimed at the popular cheaper record buying market and was available from November 1922 until August 1927.
The surfaces of the records were always very smooth, though.
The English masters were in a 78000-7900 series, the American ones ran from 68000 to 70000, then restarted at 105000, reaching somewhere in the 108000 range. Electrical recording came quite late; only one or two English matrices on Actuelle are electric; the American masters went electric at about 107100, though some early electrics have matrices in an E-2000 range.
This extremely rare British label is also one I know little about, other than it is from the Vocalion stable like Beltona, Guardsman, etc.
