Seller's Description

This is the original Record Information Services (RIS) publication / catalogue (catalog / label listing / discography), "Complete British Decca 45 rpm Singles Catalogue, 1954-1983" (from the start of 45 rpm issues to when Decca effectively ceased as a Pop label). Matrix numbers are included along with the usual Artist, Titles, Month & Year of issue, and 78 rpm issues are also indicated as appropriate. The exact numerical runs are:

F 10200 to F 13924 (late 1953 to end of series in 1982, also incorporating various 22000 / 23000 catalogue numbers)
STONE 1 to STONE 12 (The Rolling Stones reissue series, 1980)
miscellaneous issues prefixed THIN, SANTA, MILES, JONES & DFE (1979 to 1983)
plus pre-November 1953 F series records later issued at 45 rpm

A very thorough work which includes articles on Label History (a very thorough, concise history of Decca), Explanatory Notes with comments on specific records, Export Records, Matrix Numbers, Unissued & Withdrawn Records, 12" Singles, Picture Sleeves, Stereo Singles, Special Series & Reissues (within the main series), Demo Records & Test Pressings, "Pop" Chart Commentary, and Label Design with illustrative pictures.

For many years Decca was a major force in Popular music and this is a must for all collectors of British Rock & Roll, Beat & Pop singles. Major artists include Tommy Steele, Terry Dene, Billy Fury, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdinck, many 1960s Beat Groups, and much, much more.

Approximately A5 size (14.8 x 21 cm, 5¾ x 8¼ inches) laminated softcover, 124 pages, published in 1984. Because this is original 1984 stock, there may be slight signs of aging. Other catalogues (catalogs / label listings / discographies) are available and will normally be listed on eBid - see for full details.

A postage discount will be given for multiple purchases - please wait or ask for an invoice if you buy more than one item.

Unless agreed otherwise, all payments must be received within 3 days - if you have a problem regarding payment, please let me know. If you are unable to pay via PayPal, alternative arrangements may be possible - please contact the seller.

After safe receipt of your item(s), please leave appropriate Feedback, which will be responded to as quickly as possible. Items are described as honestly as possible, but if you think any item does not reasonably match the description, then please contact me as soon as possible so that an amicable solution can be reached.

My experiences as a buyer have not always been happy, typically because of poorly packed or smelly items (the latter usually cigarette smoke), or sometimes unreasonable delay coupled with a lack of communication. As my Feedback indicates, you can buy from me with confidence - everything comes from a smoke free / pet free home and is sensibly packed (so no advice is necessary from buyers), and if there is a problem, you will be kept informed.

Hello Mark, Thanks for the purchases, I see you have gone ahead and paid. I will ship on Monday and refund via PayPal excess postage. Apart from a handful of faulty copies, the London Singles catalogue is long- gone. Thank you, Guy
