BURNING SOUNDS
RECORDS

 A Reggae label, and a popular, prolific and comparatively long-lasting one. Burning Sounds was run by Clive Stanhope from his record shop in Harrow Road, London W9. It issued its first single in 1976, using a BS-000s numbering series; the numbers reached BS-050 in 1979, but there seems to have been just one 7" single released after that year - Yellowman's 'Divorced' (BS-061), which dates from 1983. The company put out dozens of albums and 12" singles, and was was still issuing records in the mid 1990s. It had on its catalogue popular artists such as Owen Grey and Gregory Isaacs. Distribution was by Mojo and Daddy Kool in 1977. And EMI Records Imports (UK) Ltd, 80 Blyth Road, Hayes, Middlesex. The catalogue was handled by non-specialist firm Lugton's from May 1978. Burning Sounds Ltd.Former address: 534 Harrow Road, London W9 and 379 Harrow Road, London W9 3QP. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
