KINGDOM
RECORDS

Independent label: Kingdom Records was formed by Terry King in 1971. through the B&C company, but when the first Kingdom product - an album by Fuchsia - surfaced to months or so later it was on B&C's contemporary label Pegasus, though the Kingdom logo appeared on the sleeve.  The Kingdom label as such first appeared in the summer of the following year.  Its singles were numbered in the KV-8000s, and numbers reached KV-8010, which was 'Betcha By Golly Wow' by Oscar Harris, was issued in 1973.  At this point the company seems to have been shelved, in Britain at least.  It was reactivated in 1980, with numbers starting at KV-8009 again, for some reason.  Dozens more singles followed, and the catalogue numbers had reached KV-8033 by 1985.  The only two singles from the '70s look to have been British Homophone pressings.  Distribution in 1972 was by by President (van sales), Selecta and Bird; in 1973 the President-related distributor Enterprise appears to have done the job on its own; while Pinnacle were the distributors for the 1980s series.  Issues from KV-8014 had green labels with black printing, rather than orange-and-black ones.  Kingdom's output varied widely.  In its first incarnation it had Pop / Prog leanings, while its '80s version put out a lot of Reggae singles as well as an album and two singles by Prog Rock group Caravan - Terry King was Caravan's manager, and some of the bands albums which came out on Deram in this country were on Kingdom in certain overseas territories. Kingdom Records Former address: 9-11 Monmouth St., London WC2H 9DA.Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
