Independent label: G. Whizzard Records was owned by Douglas Maxwell.  Its main line of business was book publishing; records on the G. Whizzard label - there seem to have been two of them - were given away with books, rather than sold.  The books in question were 'Farmer Fisher' and 'Farmer Fisher's Russian Holiday', both of which were by author Jonathon Coudrille, who supplied a couple of songs to go with each; the single pictured above, 'Farmer Fisher' (WHIZZO-100; 1975) came with the 'Farmer Fisher' book.  Presumably the single which accompanied the 'Russian Holiday' book was WHIZZO-101.  Jonathon Xavier Coudrille (born Jonathan Coudrill is an English artist, musician and writer. Born in November 1945 in Birmingham. His second book Farmer Fisher (1975) was a best seller, winning the UK Children's Book of The Year award in 1976.[10] Farmer Fisher is thought to have been the first picture book on the UK market to include a record (7-inch vinyl disc). It was republished in 1978 by Puffin Books, and in 010 by Footsteps Press. Distributed By G. Whizzard Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
