(UK) EMBASSY LPs
1959 - 1965

     Since the original publication of the Embassy singles listing in 1991, only one catalogue number remains unaccounted for, and there has also been some additional EP information. Current purchasers of the listing have been kept up-to-date with added supplementary pages, one of which is a basic but incomplete listing of Embassy LPs. To stay up-to-date, below is that current basic listing of all known Embassy LPs during the Woolworth period. In later years, CBS used the Embassy trademark to issue a series of budget LPs, but they are outside the scope of this listing.

     Any additional information is welcome - I am happy to add track listings if supplied with suitable cover and / or label pictures. Thanks to Bob Lusty for WLP 5009, 6069, 6075, 6078 update, Deborah Catt for WLP 6039, and Tony Osterman for WLP 6077.
