(UK) RAK 45 rpm Singles
1970-1988

     This is a previously published list, originally compiled by Paul Pelletier in the early 1990s (with help from Chris Riggs & others), here updated. Mickie Most proved to be a far more successful record producer in Britain than performer, although he did achieve noticeable singing success in the much less competitive South African market. Formed by Mickie Most in 1969, Rak Records was aimed squarely at the Pop chart singles market and overall achieved its aim - it produced a good crop of hit records, but lacked enduring high profile personalities or groups to compare with Bowie, Elton John, Queen, etc.

     Rak singles issued on EMI's "Golden 45s" G45 series can be found here - EMI Golden 45s G45 Singles, 1984-1985
     The companion Rak LPs listing can be found here
- Rak LPs, 1970-1982
     Any additional information is welcome. Thank you to Karl Moore for the info that RAK 305 exists as a "white label" pressing.

SOHO

Mona Lisa smile
It's all over your face (it's all over)

[RAK 501 - whilst this pic. sleeve record is known to exist, it appears to have lacked any promotion and sank almost without trace, begging the question, why? And does this group (assuming it is a group) have any connection with pop trio Soho and its variant spellings? The B-side, written by singer / guitarist and ex-Uriah Heep frontman Pete Goalby, is recycled on RAK 504 where Goalby hides behind the pseudonym Perfect Stranger]

Dec-87

THE LONDON COMMUNITY GOSPEL CHOIR

Conversion
May Day song for North Oxford

[RAK 502 pic. sleeve says B-side performed by THE ETON COLLEGE CHAPEL CHOIR, the label shows the A-side choir; however, the exact B-side by the Eton College Chapel Choir appears on Silhouette LP MDKR 1 "Poetry In Motion" issued in 1990. Both the Rak single and Silhouette LP were Mike Read projects. As a black Gospel choir and a boys' public school choir are hardly likely to sound similar, aural investigation will solve the matter]
