Looks like a privately made acetate / demo disc for the guy credited on the label

Pretty much what I thought too Pete but never seen one like it before so just wanted others opinions

Interesting. Calrec was and is a specialist producer of professional audio equipment, primarily for the broadcasting industry. They started life in 1964 as a manufacturer of microphones and are still based in Hebden Bridge.

 

Naturally they would have had their own studios for testing, recording, etc, and this is a product of that.

Just found a bit more...

 

The company was first formed in 1956 as the Calder Valley Sound Recording Group - a recording studio in Hebden.

 

In 1962 it becomes the Calder Valley Sound Recording Company.

 

In 1964 it changes to Calder Recordings Ltd and starts producing microphones.

 

In 1971 it starts manufacturing professional mixing consoles for TV and radio.

My mate sent me a couple of sound files and it sounds like some British whites fellas doing covers of the classics. Not very good but not a bad attempt I suppose.  

Couldnt find anywhere on their website about cutting records and I have told him to give the company a call for any info they could help with.
