CJMO
RECORDS

 Independent label: CJMO - the C. John Mears Organization - seems to have had a penchant for unusual items, among which were fairground organ records, a collection of favorite songs by the Ovaltineys, and an album of poetry for children, spoken by Arthur Lowe ('Moveaboutalot', RLP-777; 1977).  It looks to have been active from the mid '70s to at least the early '80s. LPs and EPs alike are numbered in the 700s, which suggests that they may have shared the same numerical series; the first two numbers may well indicate the year of issue. LPs were prefixed 'CJMO RLP', EPs 'CJMO R'. Distribution of CJMO records was by Lugton. The company offered a custom recording service, the products of which were numbered in a PX-1000 series: some hadn't any discrete label identity, others appeared on the artists' own labels - see 'Hustle' and 'Neutron' for examples. In addition it produced promotional records for companies such as Alliance Cash & Carry; these had their own 'CJMO P' prefix. Pressing appears mostly to have been by Pye, though at least one in the series of Alliance EPs was pressed by EMI. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
