in 1964, Senator was an even cheaper price sister label to Embassy,
both produced by Oriole for exclusive sale through F.W. Woolworth stores
in Britain, although available for export elsewhere. Senator was an LP only
label, unlike Embassy, and mainly consisted of reissues of Embassy
material under changed names or recycled CBS material, that company having
acquired Oriole around the time the Senator label was introduced. Senator
appears to have ended at the same time as Embassy in 1965, presumably
contract to supply F.W. Woolworth stores came to an end; subsequently,
Woolworth's sold records issued by Pickwick, which company licensed
material from a variety of established record labels.
Any additional information is welcome

Stuart Ralls for providing information about this label and the sleeve pictures to date, track listings
