THE WONDER OF
A TRIBUTE WEBSITE DEVOTED TO EMBASSY RECORDS, SOLD BY F.W. WOOLWORTHS BETWEEN 1954 & 1965
FRANKLIN WINFIELD WOOLWORTH
1852 - 1919
THE MAN WHO STARTED IT ALL
The website includes a history of the Embassy label, details of the artists with, where possible their real names, a Guestbook where you can leave a message or memory and in time a list of all the Embassy records ever made.
This is a most spectacular cover. An EP issued at the time Sean Connery was riding high in the film charts with his portrayal of 007, James Bond. It contained 4 previously issued tracks, detailed of which may be found in Recordings.
No photos on this EP cover but good music. Contained 4 previously issued "Twist" recordings.
No. 4 in the Jukebox Favourites Series. This EP would have been released in the early 60's and the cover shows the recordings.
Mike was one of the the most prolific singers to record for Embassy. Here, one of his EP's has been released in Spain.
As well as the Top Twenty, Embassy used to issue Film and other Scores. This EP shows the issue of Gigi and Carmen.
Something of an enigma, here 4 recordings by Bud Ashton are released in Spain on the Vergara label.
Some well known Skiffle numbers, performed by The Coffee Bar Skifflers
Despite having to be played at 33 rpm, this is a Single release of Goldfinger by Joan Baxter, issued in south America on the CBS label.
Man of Mystery
Released in Argentina. Orchestra conducted by Steve Stannard.
Back to the Twenties.
One of my favourite LP's. In line with the 20's theme, the sleeve notes say "Vocal refrains by Bobby Stevens & Don Duke".
Songs and music from this Cliff Richard film.
Dixieland, The Dixielanders
There is still controversy over the line-up.
Embassy Records certainly had some wonderful EP & LP Covers.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of my collection. You will find more throughout the website.
