Angela Jones - Great British Record Labels: Triumph Angela Jones - Great British Record Labels: Triumph : VARIOUS ARTISTS : 2CD
Of the record companies featured in RHGB's "Great British Record Labels" series, TRIUMPH were by far the smallest, and most shortlived. Active for merely ten months, they released just fourteen singles and an EP, registering one major Top 10 hit and a couple of lower chart entries. Yet they remain perhaps the most interesting and collectable British record label of the era, due to their catalytic role in the career of indie producer Robert George 'Joe' Meek, the man whose initials famously prefixed their catalogue numbers. Ironically, of course, Meek didn't produce all the label's output, as his involvement with Triumph only lasted around six months. But when he left, he took with him the bulk of their artists plus the master tapes of a plethora of unissued recordings which had been destined for the label, the knock-on effect of which was to create an almost mythical "what might have been" aura around Triumph, which has continued to expand over the ensuing decades. This unique compilation brings these recordings together for the very first time. Disc One features the singles released during 1960, plus extracts from the I Hear A New World EP, introduced by Meek himself; Disc Two comprises sides originally recorded for Triumph, but ultimately either left on the shelf or issued on other labels, further down the line (NB: it is not possible to tell the Triumph story in detail here due to restrictions of space; for a fuller history, including release information, please visit our website:
