Press Album Discography
By David Edwards, Patrice Eyries, Mike Callahan, Randy Watts and Tim Neely
Last update: May 29, 2012

Press Records was a subsidiary of London Records. It was established in 1961 and lasted until 1966. There were three albums released on Press, one each by the Flares, the Fortunes (the most successful group), and Los Bravos.

Singles artists included the Dynamos, the Ramrocks, Betty & Rose, the Peppers, Cookie Jackson, Adam Mike & Tim, Babbity Blue, the Gamblers, the Mighty Avengers, the Small Faces, Rod Stewart, and Rick & Sandy.

The early Press labels (far left) were purple with silver print with a silver logo. The final Press issue had a dark red label with black print with a blue and white logo (near left).
