As many of you will know who read our article about Towersey Festival, this year marks the 75th Anniversary of the oldest independent record label in the world: Topic Records.
They will be celebrating with a unique concert hosted by Norma Waterson, Eliza Carthy and The Gift Band at the festival which also celebrates its 50th year between 21-25 August 2014.
Topic have a number of special releases lined up from their vaults so don’t miss out on their appearance at the Independent Label Market in London’s Spitalfield Market. Make sure you put 12th July in your diaries and head on down to meet David Suff and to get your hands on plenty of exclusives including special limited edition vinyl releases such as the Shirley Collins ‘Heroes in Love’ EP (see below) and these button badges (right).
For me personally, Topic Records is a very unique and special label and if you haven’t yet fallen in love with their fine archive of recordings then maybe this short new film which provides a brief history of the label’s first 75 years will tempt you.
Make sure you follow them (links below) as they announce a lot on their Facebook page.
