Chips - Weldon McDougal


 Share

Recommended Posts

Now I understand that Chips was a record distribution company and that Weldon McDougal worked there but why is his name on so many Chips stickers that I've recently seen on American record labels of various descriptions?

Dave Raistrick on here has met and spoken to Weldon back in the 80's so he might have some idea of Weldon's exact position at the company.

I always assumed he was one among other promotion guys,

I've got a Frankie on Gamble with a Chips sticker and stamped DJ Copy.

Those Chips stickers are the worst! There is no way of getting them off the label without damage!

I wouldn't even try now. Some types of stickers have come off with a little water and time, but these are impervious to water and the glue sticks like poopoo to a blanket!😀

Bit strange having a chips sticker (or any distributor for that matter) on a 45 that was given away within the LP tho' Dave ??

I've got an Alexander Patten boot, the good one with two 'Chips' stickers, one each side... who ever did it really wanted this to pass it off as legit...  notmally you only find it on the 'PLUG' side right...

I too thought the 45 came with the LP. But it was discussed here on SS not too long ago. There's no documented evidence the 45 was handed out with the LP.

Alex Araco. I knew him well. 

The rest of the team I believe were:

Ed Gilreath, Jimmy Bishop and Harold Berenbaum

So why did Chips stickers have individual employee names on them too?

A little off topic Kev ... but do you have any idea what happened to Jimmy Bishop ? He seemed to literally disappear off the face of the earth circa 70's and no one, not even is closest associates, have ever been able to account for his disappearance.
