Welcome to the
Record Information Services
which was established in 1974,
long before computers in most homes and the spread of the internet,
to provide reliable information via label listings (catalogues / discographies) of British record labels
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 continues to provide the most accurate and well-researched work of its kind, some of which is now
being made freely available online. Record Information Services was also
the original publisher of
the two-volume discographical set "Blues Records, 1943-1970" by
Mike Leadbitter & others, as well as
"Gospel Records, 1943-1969" by Bob Laughton & Cedric Hayes,
and "A Blues Bibliography" by Robert Ford.
In addition to the foregoing, back in 1981 Record Information Services was responsible for issuing
very sought-after Heavy Metal / NWOBHM single by Demon Pact on the Slime label, and
maintains a watch on
in all Demon Pact compositions, recordings, logos and other artwork.
is currently selling off large numbers of original (mainly) British record
trade catalogues, release sheets, brochures, leaflets, etc.
