The Saydisc & Village Thing Discography is the second volume in the occasional Great British Record Labels series and comes hot off The Record Press to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Saydisc, which began life in 1965 as Saydisc Specialized Recordings Ltd, and the 40th anniversary of Village Thing, which grew out of Bristol’s vibrant, late 1960s post-blues, folk scene.
This discography includes: - Listings of all known UK LPs, 7” records, CDs and tape issues, plus track listings. - Sleeve illustrations for almost every record listed. - Previously unpublished photographs. - Illustrations of all known label designs plus memorabilia. - A history of Saydisc and Village Thing, with contributions from the label owners.
Inside is an in-depth look at the wonderfully-eclectic Saydisc label and at the UK’s original “alternative folk label”, Village Thing. Also included are the Saydisc related Matchbox, Roots, Amon Ra and Ahura Mazda labels. To make this anniversary celebration even more special, the book includes over 50 pages of illustrations – some previously unpublished – including sleeve illustrations for almost every record listed. Those few sleeves that are missing are so rare that even Saydisc does not have file copies!
