Beck Records Former Address: 2 Gisburne Road Wellingborough Northamptonshire NN8 4EE. Beck was established by Derek Tompkins in 1969, and it is still going today, under different ownership. It was a custom recording concern, and a pretty prolific one at that; but as is the way with such businesses its products are hard to trace. The Beck singles were numbered in the BECK-500s to the BECK-800s. As they were from in 1976-79, this suggests that numbering may have begun at BECK-001, though that is merely a guess. Records with Beck numbers appeared on other labels: see also Bancrupt, D.J and Music Bank. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
