DON PEARCE ENTERTAINMENTS
Don Pearce Entertainments Records may not qualify as a label, but as it was the only identification on a couple of singles by The Storytellers other than the title and artist, it seems fair to treat it as such. 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me' b/w 'Keep The Customer Satisfied' was actually a product of Beck Recording Studios, but the only clue to that is the matrix number in the run-off - DT-17 - which was one of a series used by that company. There's no date on the label, either, but the year of release is given as 1972. 'Beautiful Sunday' b/w 'Love Story' is equally short on information. It can be found in two forms. One has a pale green label with a credit to Beck Studios and a catalogue number of BECK-42 on it. The other has a matrix number of TOM-6, which may well refer to Derek Tompkins, the owner of Beck; it is in a style which indicates a British Homophone pressing. 'Beautiful Sunday' was a hit for Daniel Boone in April 1972, which suggests that the Storytellers' cover version may have been from not too long after that. Don Pearce Entertainments record came out on a label called 'Melody Maid': it was a self-titled album by Born Free (SRTM/CUS-027). In that particular case the recording was done at Porcupine Studios and the record was made through SRT. Distributed By Don Pearce Entertainments Records.
