FEELGOOD
RECORDS

Independent label: Feelgood Records was owned by Alan Blakely. When it started out, in the summer of 1976, Feelgood concentrated mainly on Reggae, but it broadened its range of music fairly swiftly and eventually ended up mainly as a vehicle for Rock 'n' Roll band The Cruisers. Catalogue numbers suggest that it released sixteen singles, using an FLG-100 numbering series, but FLG-112 seem not to have been issued. There appears to have been a hiatus of some sort in late 1977: only one single, FLG-110, was issued in 1978, and none at all in 1979; the label reappeared in 1980 with FLG-113.    There were a couple of successful artists on the catalogue, in the forms of Osibisa and Desmond Dekker, but despite that none of Feelgood's records ever threatened the charts. Manufacture and distribution were by Pye until the middle of 1977, and FLG-110 was distributed by Charmdale.  RCA made and handled the final three singles, which came out in 1981.  The label's design remained basically the same throughout its life, but its colour changed from brown-and-yellow to green-and-white at the time of its second wind, in 1980.  The three RCA-era singles have a reference to that company at the bottom of the label. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
