CREOLE
RECORDS

 Independent label: Creole Records enjoyed two separate incarnations.  The first, short-lived, one was as a Reggae label, distributed by Trojan). At that time it was an outlet for material licensed from the Commercial Entertainments management agency run by Bruce White and Tony Cousins, which, under the name 'Creole Music', had turned its hand to music publishing and making records. It put out six singles during 1970-71, five of which were UK productions. Catalogue numbers were in a CR-1000 series. Several productions were by 'Bruce Anthony', a pseudonym used by the pairing of White and Cousins. 'Bruce Anthony' productions also appeared on the main Trojan label, Bruce Ruffin's popular 'Rain' being a case in point. White and Cousins severed the link with Trojan in 1972 and set up a couple of labels, Cactus and Rhino, both of them more or less devoted to Reggae. Rhino, which seems to have been for the more commercial material, disappeared in 1974. The Creole label proper was reborn in January 1975 with a new design, it went on to put records out throughout the '70s and after. Its products seem to have leaned in the direction of Pop / Europop / Disco material. It registered a good number of Chart hits, with records by John Asher, The Chequers, and Crispy & Company, among others; the most successful artist in the 70s however was Ruby Winters, who followed her Top 5 single of 1977, 'I Will' (CR-141), with three more Chart entries in 1978-79. Creole also has the distinction of releasing the first British single by Boney M, 'Baby Do You Wanna Bump' (CR-119; 1976) - it wasn't a hit, even when reissued in the wake of that band's success. 1976 saw a link-up with Byron Lee's 'Dynamic Sounds' company and the revival of the Dynamic label. Initially manufacturing and distribution of the reborn Creole were by EMI; CBS took over in 1977, without prompting any change to the label design or to the numbering, which was in a CR-100 series. A minor change of logo took place in 1979. Also in 1979 a block of numbers from CR-178 to CR-197 was used for a separate batch of issues on the company's 'Blast From The Past' label. Creole Records was bought by Sanctuary in 2003. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
