UK Record Label Debut Hits - The First Decade 1952-61
Catalogue Number: ADDCD3081
This is a spin-off from our popular and unique British Hit Parades series, and comprises the debut hits for every record label that featured in the first 10 years of the UK record sales charts from their inception in 1952 through to 1961. We have even included, for the sake of completeness, the first hits issued on 45 rpm if the original debut hit was only released on 78. For collectors who take an interest in the labels that past hits were released on, it’s a fascinating insight into the history of the music business as well as an entertaining pot pourri of the popular music of the era. As a somewhat oblique angle on the music business machinations of the time it is likely to get the attention of the national and local radio presenters who focus on this era of music as well as the reviewers in the specialist press.
