Independent label: Famous Records was a subsidiary of American company Gulf + Western.  The Famous label failed to live up to its name; it never troubled the Chart compilers.  Famous singles are uncommon: the label usually turns up in the shape of Ralph McTell's, 'You Well Meaning Brought Me Here' LP, when it turns up at all.  Famous issued at least twelve singles in a FAM-100 numerical series from 1970 to 73, before disappearing along with the other G+W family labels (Dot, Paramount, Tumbleweed, Greene Bottle.  Distribution was by EMI.
