The B&C Discography: 1968 to 1975 By Mark Jones
Paperback: $21.56

B&C started life as a distribution company, which was set up as a sister company to Island. Island's early success led B&C's owner, Lee Gopthal, to start releasing records in his own right.... More > However, B&C's main strategy was based on licensing records rather than signing artists in its own right and many of B&C's labels concentrated on singles and budget compilation albums – strategies that set the seeds of the company's own destruction. The end, when it came in 1975 was probably inevitable. Still, whilst B&C was about, some very good music got released, almost despite itself on occasion. This book includes comprehensive discographies covering the Action, Stable, B&C, Charisma, Pegasus, Peg, People, Mooncrest, Dragon, Sussex and Seven Sun labels.< Less

More > 1950's from a variety of series including M, X, OP, S and D and J. During the initial setting up of this project, I was certain that the project should be as user-friendly as possible because essentially most discographies are used by everyday collectors. My discography is therefore a little different in scope and layout than other discographies. I wanted to include as much useful information into it as possible so that collectors could use my discography as a companion to their collecting activities. As a result, you'll notice a few differences - contemporary reviews of some sets for one and download information if the set is available online.< Less
