Welcome to the Website for

Record Information Services

which was established in 1974 (long before home computers and the spread of the internet) to provide reliable information via
label listings (catalogues / discographies) of British record labels to assist record collectors and researchers, and more recently
to provide information on the recording artists and groups themselves. Over the years, Record Information Services (RIS) has
 advanced with the times and until recently has provided the most accurate and well-researched work of its kind, some of which
is now freely available online. RIS was also the publisher of the two-volume discographical set "Blues Records, 1943-1970"
by Mike Leadbitter, etc., as well as "Gospel Records, 1943-1969" by Bob Laughton & Cedric Hayes, and "A Blues Bibliography"
by Robert Ford. In addition to the foregoing, in 1981 Record Information Services was responsible for issuing the now very
sought-after Heavy Metal / NWOBHM single by Demon Pact on the Slime label.
