1964 - 1965

     Introduced 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 because the 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 - considerable thanks is due to Stuart Ralls for providing information about this label and the sleeve pictures to date, track listings will start to appear soon.
