Well, they turned down The Beatles, but then George Harrison suggested to Dick Rowe that he should, if he had the time, check out this other band called The Rolling Stones. The rest, of course, is history. The label also introduced the recording world to Robert Fripp and a nascent Genesis. Deram was their outlet for progressive artists such as The Moody Blues, whose own label, Threshold, is included here. John Lodge produced the great Trapeze, the band that included Glenn Hughes. They also set up the Nova cut-price "underground" label for bands like Clark-Hutchingson and Galliard. Personal favs like Caravan, Wishbone Ash, The Who, and Savoy Brown are all in this list. Perhaps, the label wasn't as hip as EMI and their Harvest albums or Philips with those Vertigo swirl discs. But, nevermind, here's a slice of the 60's-70's catalog!
