Omnia appears to have been one of the labels of Cambar Productions, a company set up in April 1975 by Joseph Campbell and David Barnes.  The only record on it that I have been able to track down is the one shown above, an anonymous rendering of 'The Count Worm Song' backed with Michael Hordern telling 'The Count Worm Story'; the catalogue number of that record, CB-002, suggests that there ought to be at least one more. In its better-known form 'Count Worm' is a book for young children, written by Roger Hargreaves, the creator of the 'Mr. Men'.  The book seems to have been first published in November 1978, so the '1977' on the record requires explaining; it's possible that the record came out first, but it seems slightly odd.  Presumably, being aimed at children, the single came with a picture sleeve or a booklet originally.  In 1980 Campbell, Barnes and Paul Hart formed Cambar Music, which concentrated on producing jingles and music for television.  Cambar placed several singles with other labels, including 'Wurzel's Song' by Jon Pertwee on Decca (F-13885; 1/80) and Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins singing 'One-Four-Seven' on Solid (STOP-003, 6/82) but it also put one out on its own Cambar Records label, in 1981 - 'Pride of Bambergh' by Jon Pertwee & Tom Matthews (CAM-1).
