Chancery Records was a DIY label. It managed one single. It issued singles in an CH-00 numerical series. Chancery issued the single shown, 'Operator' b/w 'Bounce Right Back', by Heartbeat, in July 1979.  Despite the evidence of its catalogue number, CH-42, I find it hard to believe that there were forty-one other Chancery singles and that they've all disappeared without trace. The numbers may have started and ended at CH-42 for some reason.  As for the music on the record: the 'A' side is country-tinged religious Disco Pop with female vocals; the 'B' side, which has male vocals, is an insistent and quite hooky Pop song - it's a pity that it's mono and it sounds as though it was recorded in somebody's front room.  Be that as it may; pressing was by Lyntone, the matrix numbers being LYN-6887/8, and distribution was by H. R. Taylor. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
