Expo Leicester 72 Records was a DIY label. It managed one single. Expo Leicester 72's sole release was an EP of songs from 'The Great Tent Show', performed by the original cast.  The songs all appear to be about the city of Leicester and its heritage; presumably Expo Leicester itself was a celebration of that city.  The EP's catalogue number was EXPO-1, and it came in a special sleeve. It issued singles in an TS-000 numerical series. In September 1972 the British Association for the Advancement of Science held its annual meeting in Leicester. To coincide with this event many Leicester firms joined together with the local council to arrange a 'five-day pageant' celebrating the city's history and heritage. Expo Leicester '72 was held in Abbey Park, consisting of exhibitions from local manufacturers and a host of entertainments, including The Great Tent Show, a musical telling of the story of Leicester which included ‘The Leicester Song’ celebrating the city’s industrial success.
