Bumble Records was a DIY label. This Bumble label was more short-lived than the first and was more bumble-beeish in appearance. It was from the Midlands. Bumble FormerAddress: 54 Oxford Street, Penkhull, Stoke-On-Trent. The only record was an EP by Ray Parkes called 'Bar Room Country Singer', which had a catalogue number of BUM-1.  There is no date on the label, but three of the tracks (Don Williams's 'Amanda' and 'Time On My Hands', plus Tom Paul Glazier's 'Put Another Log On The Fire') are from the early / mid '70s.  The title track, which was written by Ray Parkes himself, became popular on the continent in a version recorded by Roger Whittaker in 1981. Logic indicates that Parkes's own version must pre-date that one, which suggests that the EP dates from 1979 or 1980. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
