Nashville International

Nashville International

Profile:
A London-based Country Music label, owned by Mervyn Conn; a successor to his Nashville (7) label. Nashville International's imminent launch was reported in 'Music Week' of the 16th of September 1972; article stated that Conn had arranged for Pye to handle the new label, and that it would offer a mixture of originals and American material sourced from the 'Mega' label. For some reason the company's first two singles, 'Dialogue / Looking Back In Anger' b/w 'Greystone Chapel' by Glen Sherley (7N-45181) and Sammi Smith's 'I've Got To Have You' b/w 'Kentucky' (7N-25595) were issued on the Pye / Pye International labels on the 6th of October, by which time it was already issuing albums - the Sherley single carried a note that the tracks were taken from his Nashville International LP (NAL-5003). Nashville International made its debut as a 7" label in its own right the following month, and it went on to issue eight more singles, which were numbered in a NAS-100 series; NAS-107 seems not to have been used. It also released around a dozen albums, including a new one from British duo Graham & Lynn McCarthy and reissues from Bill Black's Combo and Harlan County. Its final records came out towards the end of 1974 but it must have continued as a company for at least a few more years - several of its products were listed in the Pye catalogue for 1977. Manufacture and distribution were by Pye throughout; demo copies were marked with a silver 'A' and had the release date on them. In 1980 Conn started up the 'Mervyn Conn Presents' label, which was again dedicated to Country music.
