EMBASSY RECORDS, the cover versions label sold exclusively in Woolworths, was one of the most successful and profitable UK record labels of the 50s and 60s.

Retailing at around half of the (cartel controlled) usual price, most Embassy releases sold in their tens – some, in their hundreds – of thousands, and many outsold the actual UK hit versions of their songs.

Yet none of their records ever made the UK charts, due to objections from the established major labels.

This compilation presents a cross-section of their output, between 1955-62; sixty-eight covers of songs that were predominantly U.S. hits, before charting in the UK.

Includes Maureen Evans’ celebrated ’Stupid Cupid’, which is believed to have sold more than Connie Francis’ chart-topping version.

There is a thriving Embassy collectors’ market in the UK, nowadays, who will love this release.
