True date of KPM Brownsleeves series LPs
« on: September 22, 2020, 03:51:30 PM »
I was wondering what is the actual date of the KPM Brownsleeves LPs. On the websites of EMI Production Music and APM Music it says that the LPs were produced between 1959 and 1967. But, in the majority of the LPs that appear in Discogs, the date is 1970. Who is right?

These were old 10Ē 78ís from the 50ís and 60ís that were reissued if you like on 12Ē LPs which could hold a lot more tracks.  These LPs cane out probably late 60ís into the 70ís I would guess.

I don't know why EMI Production Music and APM Music put the date of the 78 rpm records on the vinyls from the 1970. The albums covers and the tracks on these sites are from the 1970.

The LPs are dated at 1970, but their cues originate from previously issued 78s. See listing here:

The Mood Modern book gives a couple of dates.

P. 42 mentions the first KP 78s were made in 1957.

P. 56 mentions that library catalogs were reluctant to change from 78s to LPs even by 1966 because TV studios preferred cuing up records with chinagraph pencils while LP grooves were too tiny.

P. 79 mentions after the launch of the KPM 1000 series, Robin Phillips wanted to convert the 78s to brownsleeve LPs in 1970. Aaron Harry was pressed into making the compilations and masters in the edit suite cutting tape.

I have a couple of KP/KPM 78s and they do give dates on the label like 1960 and 1962.

I also have a couple of sheet music arrangements published by Peter Maurice Music (the M of KPM) which were published in MCMXLVI, not sure why they used Roman numerals but thatís 1946.

They have the same titles and melodies as heard on the 78s, but they are full 7 part arrangements which will take some time in transcribing.

Perhaps in the 1960s, they went digging through Mauriceís back catalogue to find something to record.
