LONDON LATE 78s 8500 - 9190 ~~ with 78s info

This page is about late London 78s & what's still out there & findable. 2011 is a good time to be researching with the Internet and older collectors selling up. You may find thousands in old shops or fairs etc if you can be bothered raking through a box & inevitably breaking a few. Any additions you can make with sending photos, email us via the link above. What's rare on 45 can be seen to be rare on 78, but some over £100 45s are more easily found on 78 from pre 1958 & it gives a better idea of what sold beyond the limitations of the Top 30 charts. Seeing a record you know well on a 45 but as a 78 looks spooky as most buyers don't see 78s much now. Who was actually buying these late & obsolete 78s when from early 1957 the 45s were selling better, despite Philips & Oriole being late into 45s.

London 78s from the era we cover here were mastered loudly, just as well as the noisy shellac they used until 1960 was unlike the semi flexible 78s used in the USA or the vinyl ones Pye used. Find the Platters 'Only You' on 78 & the first ones are on heavy shellac but the later ones from about 1957 are on vinyl & sound much nicer. In contrast, the 1929 era 78s on Columbia & other EMI related labels still play with very little noise. A layer of thin white paper was pressed into the shellac & a high quality coating was put over this & the grooves are pressed into the coating leaving a very smooth 78, likely the best 78 made until the vinyl ones, some call these Laminated pressings. Only careless playing with the grooves in the first few revolutions being bashed by needle drops mars these high quality 78s. And at this time there were the bluesy women singers that are still much wanted, all sounding much better than a 78 is expected to.

78s ON SALE IN 1962 STILL. We hear the 1962 Decca Catalog still had 78s available to order, clearly unsold stock from 1959-60 & that 9000 - 9018, 9020, 9021, 9022, 9029, 9030, 9034, 9045, 9050, 9067, 9072, 9073, 9075, 9086, 9104, 9106, 9111, 9131, 9134, 9142, 9145, 9149, 9150, 9157, 9161, 9162, 9168, 9170, 9184, 9188, 9161, 9162, 9168, 9170, 9184, 9188 and 9190 were issued on 78 & available. Whether some of these still exist as sales could have been tiny & with how easy they break. All would have been pressed in anticipation of sales or quick orders but only on special order as no shop would be risking stocking the obsolote format as with the 45-Tape-CD to Download changes today. Also "45" disappeared from Decca pressed records in the catalog numbers as by 1963 the 78s were removed. In 1962 you could have bought the whole set for small money. In 1963 someone had the sad task of recycling these unsold 78s.

In our years dealing records generally in used records, a 78 issued after mid 1958 was always a rare item. Finding a cracked WB1 78 was the latest one we had as well as having an Elvis 1959 & a few 1959 No 1s you just didn't see these & having raked thru a lot of 78s going back to Edison discs we have a good idea of what there is, though the market for 78s is tiny & this is a shame as much good music amid them & before the 45rpm era too. Most 78s are pop artists or dance bands of little interest to today's buyer, but early UK Blues & Jazz and also early C&W from the late 1920s onwards is worth a play. Read elsewhere about stylus sizes & more. USA 78s hold a huge wealth of great pre 45rpm era music but finding them in anything better than worn smooth is another thing.

The London book, if this can be believed (time will tell) says London issued 78s of every release from HLA 8500 in October 1957 to HLA 9018 in December 1959 & then selected ones until HLX 9190 in September 1960. The chances are they all were available on 78 to buy or order, as why would the RIS book give duff information, but did any actually sell & still are existing? The way record dealers & collectors work is they would know a late 78 is a rare item & several have gone over £100, so they'd be on ebay or similar. But there are plenty that would reach over £20 that are remaining unfound, so DO THEY ACTUALLY {still} EXIST?

Look how many Chart Hits (marked in bold) we haven't found yet & non-chart R&B artists Like Ruth & Lavern would be money 78s. As with Cartoons from the Golden years, these have been known about for decades, so as with a few Betty Boop cartoons & a Laurel & Hardy silent, these are stated as "lost" as no-one has a copy in any form, but they clearly did exist once. Similarly but to a lesser extent with the Tom & Jerry cartoons, the earliest ones do not exist on the master copies now due to a WB storage fire once & only exist through prints that were made for Cinema & TV & being popular, many survived. Records & Films as well as other collectables are not made of stone so get lost or destroyed. But with London 78s, does anyone care enough to research them? Apart from us of course & remember the Gold-Silver and late Tri data wasn't properly compiled by anyone until we started our research, admittedly much easier in the Internet age than trying 20 years ago would have been.

We've never heard of unopened boxes of UK 78s been found, but 45s you do from around 1960 onwards. This means unsold 78s were recycled & maybe only tiny quantities were made in hope of a sale. You can see some of the 45s in our Late Tris are extra elusive, eg 8967, 8986, 8997, 9004, 9008 and even 9018, so why would London press 78s of all of these & who would buy? There is a chance some were only pressed to order & tiny batches made & destroyed if unsold. Then after 9018, there are 78s of selected titles until finally 9190 was the last one. Some we have seen, others are to be found. If the dull pop 45 that is unfindable was issued on 78, did they actually sell? From auction info, these were likely exported to less advanced Countries and areas & India even issued The Beatles on 78. USA gave up on 78s earlier, making the 1959 ones as rare as UK 1960 ones. South Africa continued into at least 1961.

A nice pure guessed idea we heard that if a late 78 was on Tri on 45 it was on 78. But that proven false easily with 8989 Don French which so far is round centre only on 45. Those after 9062 are all round too.

Having been based around London years back, 78s became rare by 1958. In less busy regions with economic differences, smaller towns & cities 78s must have sold better than we thought as the obvious hits from 1958 are turning up & found quite easily in the 8500-8600s, but by 8800 they have become much harder to trace. If rare on 45, it's much rarer on 78 is still the story though.

So we're going to try to find all the 78s from 8500 to 9190! It'll never be completed as the odds are with how easily broken they are, the ones that might have sold 12 copies, with how records got broken, binned & nature damaging, that perhaps 75% of records (on 78 at least) don't exist now. 45s & LPs survive better & to guess 50-75% of them still exist from pre 1977 might be it. Some are easier to find, the hits & famed rarities, some are far from that in both ways. One price-reporting site only shows a surprisingly small amount that have sold £20+ & the prices except on a few aren't too high despite the rarity. A lot of these rare or not are £5 items due to what 78 buyers want today & the 78 market supposedly grew big according to RC in the 1990s but today it seems that hype was the story mostly & just limited to the few top rarities.

From looking on ebay, London 78s pre 8500 are not too readily found beyond the big hits & expected Pat & Slim. The big Rock & Roll 78s from 1956-57 sold well and are easily found, but as with the 45s, a rare 45 is a rarer 78 as less will have survived. Nappy Brown or Clarence Henry on 78 much rarer than a No.1 from early 1959 like Jane Morgan or Bobby Darin. Early UK London 78s are on Blue, eg Al Morgan L500 first press is on blue, as are some other very early ones, which may have been the same as the Export copy but some were sold in the UK until they changed to Black to keep them apart for sales figures. You find UK exports & even the odd demo 78. It's interesting & for small money good music can be got, but buy a few at a time to save post & the smashed 78 woes. A big surprise for us is how CHEAP Blues 78s are. In the days of GRT in 1998, blues 78s were making good prices & not just the big names either. But seeing them for a few quid shows the sellers don't know what they are & buyers of USA blues-R&B in the UK are as plentiful as those who buy pre 1955 blues-R&B 45s! As with anything underpriced, they'll wake up so load up with them while they're cheap. Louis Jordan for just £3 honestly...

78RPM WEBSITES. Type London UK 78 into Google & you'll find one of our London pages & likely this too later. There is/was an intriguing site 78.co.uk but it's actually a nothing front page of a site, rather than drooler's delight like the 45s one. Now we've been told a new site exists looking very like 45cat.com format as they are related entitled 45worlds.com/78rpm which is still in it's early days with only 10,000 78s as of mid 2015. A worthy way to keep 78s alive of the Pre 45s era as much great music is on 78 only & any dubbed from 78 in the early days filtered off the surface noise harshy creating a ringing effect or are too dull sounding. The family of sites includes 12" singles, CD singles & Cassette singles, the last two never have found much popularity.

Looking so far, mostly only predictable ones being found & the market for them isn't particularly great. Things like Eddie Cochran 20 Flight Rock 78 making £56 whereas the 45 from £88-100.... Rock & Roll buyers clearly still into 78s for old Jukeboxes.

Looking on ebay where we found many London 78s, especially from sellers who relist them for eternity & perhaps pays repeat listing fees totalling more than the current price. Many 78s on ebay are a total waste of time listing & should be 50p-£1 car boot items, if only browsers didn't break them as often happens in any boxful. On looking, much good R&B, Jazz & C&W is there amid the usual, but only if you know the names, as well as the pre-war female bluesy vocalists that are popular. Seeing the ended & sold items, what does sell is still encouraging we're pleased to say, just as those you think would sell don't sell!

As one who has played many a 78 from all eras, with Pop type 78s you can indeed find nice music of the era & not just the hits (as looking in the USA charts book pre 1952) & lively tunes, but for the person unaware of the era & music blindly wading thru the dull tender ballads & uninspired instrumentals or the less-hot Dance Bands with a pointless half-a-verse in vocal refrain, well it's not worth the effort or money really as even 20 years ago all 78s in shops were well picked through, with the better ones priced up higher. You need to be focussed & seeing the ones having sold on ebay is a good hint, some is nostalgia but most is for good music or rarity. We found the 1926-1938 era the most interesting with the wide range of styles & lack of censorship! The pre Electric era is hard work to find not worn out and hard listening as acoustically cut. They sound best on a wind-up or pre-war electric player as this is what they were made for, on a hi-fi you need to play them with no EQ which can be done via the computer, thru a phono amp the sound is wrong. Wartime Big Band to 1950s music was less satisfying beyond that on 45 and the R&B-early C&W styles. Classical 78s, long treated as worthless by unthinking dealers do throw in a tiny few big money tunes, similar to the Stereo LP market. Anyone still make flowerpots out of 78s? You see beer coasters cut from 45 labels, so time to make a new use for those that are clearly unwanted. We're surprised no-one's made a bra out of a pair, they'd be a smashing hit on yer bird...

The "bigger sound" of a 78 that makes Rock & Roll sound richer is simply how a 78 is EQ'd and mastered, more groove space allows louder bass notes, but the response curve is different & playing on RIAA EQ'd Jukeboxes adds a rich lower mid to bass boost. You hear this difference on the earliest UK export 45s from 1950 where the bass is clearly louder than the upper frequencies as mastered with the 78 EQ. You can find more online about early Columbia LPs EQ & similar. Further to that, many records were never properly balanced sounding too bright, too thin, too boomy, too midrangey. You get the idea, they made it up as they went along even after the RIAA standards began.

But then there's the fact the 78s were played on old & usually pretty basic players. Pre 1940 ones used on a wind-up player usually & grey grooves & noise at the start, needle drop digs, drunken spiral scratch knocks, loud sections worn grey & rasping on play, edge chips, centre damage and hidden hairline cracks! We've bought what looked like high grade 1940s R&B 78s from USA with like-new labels, but were played to death on a bad jukebox to the point of cutting the groove walls & skipping. Beware buying any used USA 78s online as they are usually more worn than they look, though a lot of unplayed ones are around from old archives or the Savoy batch. UK 78s are usually in better grade but often worn intros spoil the music on pre-war ones.

Artists shown in bold means the record was a chart hit. 8629 was a top 20 hit on some charts but not the one the Guinness books use. Some of the 1960 ones were hits too but no 78 was surprisingly issued of eg Billy Bland's No. 15 hit but 9081 The Drifters did get a 78. Perhaps it was down to how fast the 45 of 9096 sold & by the time the later 78 issue was considered or even prepared, sales dipped so they didn't bother with it. Only seeing the 10 weeks of chart positions would explain, possibly it charted low then peaked for 2 weeks then dipped as fast.

We've done our initial websearch for 78s & a surprising few not found including the hits. Many are under £20 so only ebay will offer these up with photos, rather than those living off old ebay auctions & want to charge you to look at their free content (!). Most other sales sites would give info only but we want photos as 100% proof.

Another interesting 78s scene is the Jamaican Calypso one with UK Decca pressing many early records, for a great read, see this site Mentomusic.com especially Label Scans of the MRS Motta export-only 78s & 45s from the mid 1950s pressed by Decca. The MRS 45s do occasionally get found complete with centres in the UK despite being export only due to being kept in archives since new. Otherwise a record lasting 50-60 years in Jamaica in high grade is going to be a rare thing, many JA 45s are in very low grade, some we had in top grade came to the UK & were the copies used to dub the UK issues from for Starlite and Ska Beat.

A Gallery will follow at some time, but will probably only show the rarest ones or ones most unlikely to still exist but do according to our 45s knowledge of their rarity. Only our web stats will show if anyone is actually interested in this, once the Search engines find this page. This page has turned into a bit of a compilation of record related bits we like to publish but the 78s link has eased them in nicely.

Like anything collectable, the decades when it was just old worthless junk to most people are the wilderness years as so much gets destroyed, be it records, books or anything we now see as from a Golden Era. The life of a UK London Penguins 45 could be this: loved by the original buyer, carefully played or not, for a few months then put away ignored in a box as it was now an old record and "better" new ones replaced it. Records were as disposable as newspapers to some. If it stayed in a box stored in a cupboard or loft untouched until the 1980s it is one of the high grade ones found today. And a Lucky 45 is it. Nostalgia for the old London 45s only started with Mike Raven & his Music paper articles & listings in about 1966. If the box was with other sleeveless scuffy well-partied 45s then chucked into a loft or sold to a secondhand shop when Beatlemania hit then it's life was hard. If bought by one who kept it, all well and good, but odds are no-one wanted it for 2/6 and copies were binned as now too tatty. Sometimes the tatty copy belatedly got rescued & kept like a wounded pigeon by one who admired it. We heard of big collections of 'out-of-date' music owned by the original buyers that were loaded up into a metal dustbin in the 60s. Hope the binman liked music! Luckily we think he did, as this person wrote their name (hmm...) on each one and a high grade copy of a Johnny Kidd 45, unlike those smoke stained rough ones that remained, we found recently!

Days Gone By: Buying Records from long-established Record Shops.

You sometimes find in secondhand shops (or used to...) racks of 45s. The unwanted ones, even if as-new got shuffled by hundreds of browsers: one shop recently departed that delivered us a Nix Nomads & an Oak acetate of Keith Dangerfield for 20p each used to sell 45s new in the 1980s & some they'd put in the secondhand section after going unsold. These 45s would be Picture Cover 45s and after 25 years of shuffling, the unselling 45's cover, unprotected, would be well ringworn & the 45 still unplayed but 25 years of dust & grit marking it made it below VG.

78s
being bulky were usually piled up sleeveless somewhere along the floor and kicked to pieces, we found piles under bedroom furniture or in garages kept 40... years but none of of any value. One long departed shop made the then-teen typist happy by delivering 'Mr Lee' on 78 as well as the Shyster 45 for 15p, used to pile them on a big table in the back of his cat's litter tray of a shop and one day the table stopped behaving as tables do! One guy brought us 100s of 78s costing him a lot in petrol from far away & the lot wasn't worth a tenner!

Next we would like to do London Demos from early 1956 to mid 1960, finding every pair of 1 side demos & doing a full gallery & finding all the unissued ones like our Lew Williams 'Cat Talk'. ~~ Only kidding. ~~ In truth the one-side demos are rarely found & to find a pair unless already together is a pretty hopeless search, especially the rubbish B sides to good A sides. The earliest pair we had was a 8309 Fats Domino twofer. We nearly had the Wayne Handy pair, once ridiculously superglued back-to-back together by a thoughtless soul & he split them & sold the A side to one shop & the crappy B side to us! They'll still be out there... We've had the Bobby Please A side rarity too. Those unissued ones are likely still buried in the ground at the London factory (see EP covers for the address) and those that escaped filled huge bins years ago as they cleared out. Sad but true. All these record anecdotes we can tell you!

BUT IS ANYONE ACTUALLY INTERESTED IN THIS 78s PAGE?
{yes} Makes you wonder in this age of what sells on vinyl now narrowing so much. Thankfully there is interest! Over the first month online, this page has got over half the amount of hits the Gold London page has & that's been online a year longer. Nice to see 78s are still very much alive. But we're still waiting for some 78s pics to fill the table below. This info is needed online as it'll keep 78s alive longer. We're doing this info as it interests us & the info needs collecting. On looking for London 78s we're finding other rare UK 1959-60 78s too so a gallery of them will be added some time.

THE STORY AFTER OVER A YEAR LOOKING...
we're seeing a huge range of these but some have proved elusive & probably only exist with the big 78s collectors who may not sell up for 10-20 years still. Looking thru the 78s pages & seeing same ones repeatedly if only some of the rarer and non chart ones says it's not worth trying to look further as we see one, have we got it, yes sort of repeated stuff. We'll leave it here, but if you have any missing ones we'd like to know to keep it. All the Chart hits turned up except 8619, 8810, 8824, 8841, 8863, 8865, 8915, 8963, 8985, 9017, 9039, 9050, 9121, 9134, 9146, 9149, 9157, 9163, 9172. The first 3 are going to be around but of little value, but most of the others clearly are ultra rare.
