BRITISH RECORD LABEL LISTINGS (Catalogues) For Sale

IMPORTANT: All available stocks of these catalogues (catalogs) have been shipped to Canada and are kept by the publisher's family, as listed below, and can be bought directly through this website. Prices have been added in the first column in British currency, although you can also pay in American or Canadian dollars, or Euros. Shipping from Canada will be added, payment via PayPal (but only via Friends & Family method) or by transfer in UK money to a British NatWest bank account (which also means you can pay in cash by visiting any NatWest bank branch and pay money direct into the account).
Because of the cost of Airmail shipping from Canada, prices have been significantly lowered to help buyers.

Apart from the two Directory volumes, all catalogues include month & date of issue in addition to full artist and title details, also in many catalogues the labels of origin if licensed from elsewhere (which usually means from USA labels); many catalogues feature a comprehensive label history and other detailed information of interest to the record collector or researcher.

NOTE that catalogues were produced in the standard European sizes of A4 (which is similar in size to Letter used in North America) and A5 (which is half the size of A4)

For further information or to order any of the catalogues listed below, please contact Guy Pelletier at the email address above

Issues 9 to 16 in the "Record Information" series were issued in a loose-leaf format for insertion in a ring-binder, professionally printed on red paper on both sides and hole-punched on the left-hand side for binder insertion. All of these loose-leaf issues have full Artist Indexes. Later these issues were offered in comb-bound format, most with added label listings printed to order. Because of weight issues and the high cost of A4 size paper in North America, the original pre-printed "Record Information" sheets are being offered as originally intended on their own (except for MGM) and without comb-binding to save weight for shipping and extra processing time.
