GROSVENOR
RECORDS

Independent label: Grosvenor Records was a A long-lived independent label and recording studio, operating from premises at 16 Grosvenor Road Handsworth Wood Birmingham B20 3NP.  Grosvenor was owned and run by John and Jean Taylor, in later years with the assistance of their sons, Christopher and Richard. The label specialised in organ music, though music by brass bands and handbell groups also appeared.  The vast majority of its product came out in LP format, though the occasional single and EP slipped out; the discography below seems pretty well complete as far as 7" records from the years 1970-84 are concerned.  The first release, an EP of music from the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of 'A Winter's Tale' was numbered GR-1000 and came out in 1970 ; according to the sleeve it was pressed by a company called Industrial Commercial Plastics.  Subsequent albums, EPs and singles appear to have shared the same numerical series, with a slightly changed prefix: GRS instead of GR.  EPs had an '/EP' after the GRS.  The label came in several different colours - there were silver-on-yellow and silver-on-red ones as well but the design remained the same.  Grosvenor lasted into the CD era, but it went dormant in 2003, when Mr. and Mrs. Taylor retired.  There was an associated label, 'Hollick and Taylor', which was used for custom pressings; Hollick and Taylor was the original name of the studio when it started life, in 1960. Distributed By Grosvenor Records Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
