My research led me to "Melotone Mythology Robert Johnsons Dime Store Issues" by Roger Misiewicz and Helge Thygesen. They said Romeo records were manufactured exclusively to be sold at S. H. Kress & Co. Department Stores and only 100 copies were pressed of this title. I didn't find any sales history.
I would welcome any additional information someone has.
