The Task Ahead Of Me Is Huge

Recommended Posts

Pye records - really famous UK label of the 50's, 60's and 70's.  Released some crap, released some great stuff.

Over the next few days, I have to - well I don't have to - I am about to go through 35 cd's full of Pye singles, in order, from 1954 onwards.  And they only go up to the end of 1965 so I am "eagerly awaiting" the remaining volumes up to 1970.

Wish me luck and I will save all the good stuff and turn it into podcasts or whatever.

 

p.s. Following this I have 29 volumes of UK HMV to do.

The band I associate above all others with the PYE label is the Kinks.

 

I think the first LP we ever had in our house when I was 11 years old was the first KInks LP.

 

A lot of it rough old white R & B - but I was in awe of every track on there. :D

Yes a lot of crap on Pye - Ecstacy - Olliver Reed for example. That's on a Complation CD I've got " Here Come The Boys Vol 1 - selections from Pye/Piccadilly. Has got James Galt - Comes The Dawn on it though which is very good and would be good one for a podcast.

Yeah what it is, someone is compiling all the singles and putting them out as downloads, one every 3 days or so.  So no Piccadilly or Pye International, just Pye.  Obviously I've got stacks of these already as I had all of the Sequel releases when they owned the catalogue, but there's still lots of barely known stuff.
