Watermarked image. Budget cover versions from the charts - Records - List by TopPopper. TheJudge 13th Sep Quoth Whyperion: "Littlewoods trade name was Keynote? Ah, thank you! That was the one I couldn't remember. Whyperion 13th Sep Wasn't Prova the trade name for B h S clothes etc in the old day. British Home Stores in the 70s I think never sold anything made in Britain. Didn't sell records or players either - think they sold Radios? Littlewoods trade name was Keynote?
All my clothes are branded Oxfam. Whyperion 12th Sep Dont these little stores convienently located in walking distance just up your high street sell the little silver discs in plastic containers containing all the hits of the factored arists one can never recall the name of? TheJudge 12th Sep I don't know what if any brand Tesco uses, 'cos I don't go there either.
Zabadak Wrote. I wonder what the cover models are doing now Seeing as it is 42 years ago nigh onprobably about to get their free bus passes. Your Song - The Alan Caddy Orchestra & Singers* - Englands Top 12 Hits was given this EP as a pressie for either a birthday or Xmas in I asked for it because of Sultana, which was the only track I ever liked - my parents thought it would be better value than buying the Titanic single!!!
Sadly, the sleeve went the way of all flesh many years tears? Happily, I now own a reasonably good copy of both so I'm satisfied!
In order to have their records in the racks at the right time, soundalikes producers had to anticipate which brand-new releases were most likely to make it up the charts. Not being clairvoyant, sometimes they simply got it wrong. Aye Delamare used to buy all these releases and at the time early seventies I did think these were Tescos own singers how naive I was, now rebranded as George I wonder if they will start selling them again.
Notethe price sticker on here is 'Delaware' which indeed was Tesco's homewares branding in the s - I still have three Delaware Away - Rise - Jackalas I no longer fit into themwas saving for my son who managed to bypass complete the sizesmaybe retain for the grandchildren.
Looking for any Thin Lizzy or related items. England Dont confuse people with more rambling partly true stories. To much B. S as usual but always interested in the truth. I was managing Director of Avenue tothe reason there were two labels alike was that we had a Treasure Trail promotion with TESCO also at a different price, to off set that situation we also released the Forest Label at our normal price of 5shillings.
You can see a new company releasing Avenue Product at www. We have another exclusive promotion at this time, an iPlayer which we give away for free to anyone who purchases an album through iTunes. You will also find us on various social networks. I hope this clears up what happened at Avenue in the 70s.
I will be happy to answer any further questions regarding the company. Its Car Wash - Various - Number 96 Party Music to see a lot of interest in Avenue. Forest and Disc a Fran 7inch product. Mystdrf 3rd Mar VJ I agree that Avenue transmuted into Forest probably sometime in I don't know if the price tag is a great help as there are Avenues' with a 30p tag and Forests' with a 25p. I think Alan Caddy went overseas at one point maybe this prompted the name change?
I suspect with these budget labels Disco Sucks! - You Suck! - Lobotomized Youth and shifting product were the drivers and keeping things neat and tidy for future generations didn't appear on their radar.
Perhaps Avenue didn't pay their bills and this was the consequence. On the back of the sleeve for AVE 46 there is a teaser for the following months release for an exclusive offer Your Song - The Alan Caddy Orchestra & Singers* - Englands Top 12 Hits those with 'talent' courtesy of Disc-A-Fran.
Dr Doom 3rd Mar Massive, thick and gravity defying. The golden age of the bouffant. Actually, I'm convinced after looking at the Avenue and Forest discographies that Avenue ended early then Forest took over the series and reissued most of Your Song - The Alan Caddy Orchestra & Singers* - Englands Top 12 Hits themed ie not top six compilations from I love this site! Col Wolfe 3rd Mar My Friend Jack 3rd Mar It flopped in the UK.
MonkeyHanger 3rd Mar Yeah but Baby Runaway - 5 & 21 - Baby Runaway ask again, who by and when was "Yo-Yo" a "Hit"??! Peter Sundae 3rd Mar Here you go. When I come across one of these in a pic sleeve I'll always pick it up. Took a picture of a Disc A Fran single while back, but didn't load it up as I was unsure whether to put it under Avenue or set it free on it's own.
Er, that wasn't at all geeky was it hahaha. They are UK produced and appear to be made for Export to Scandinavia. Is there a term used for these kind of records?
Budget cover version sytle thingys. If not I'm sure we can come up with a good one between us I've got some sleeves without records, but it doesn't seem in the spirit of 45cat to upload those, so I'll wait until the records turn up. It's on to Forest records next who are Avenue in all but name.
Forest utilises the same photos for their covers but in colour and the same recordings often. Col Wolfe 2nd Mar I completely understand! Mystdrf 2nd Mar Just a little hobby Mr Wolfe to stop me buying proper records, bit like Methadone to a Heroin addict.
MonkeyHanger 2nd Mar I've had that record since Rotatey Diskers 16th Jan You can add the extra tracks in the Contribution Notes field on the Contribute Record page and we will add the tracks in later. This has always been the only way to do it. My Friend Jack 16th Jan Yes, I've a number of 6-track EPs that I have not entered on here for that very reason. I'm sure it was possible a few months ago, but I can't figure it out now Would it be easy enough to change the website to allow people to enter more than M.M.B.
