Bradley's Records

Profile:
Bradley's was a British record label created by ATV Music headed by Derek Johns (and supposedly named for hotelier Alex Bradley in pre-launch publicity) that existed for just over four years between 1973 and the start of 1977.
For the company behind the label see Bradley's Records Ltd., the production company is Bradley's Records Production.
Despite only a handful of artists on their roster, in it's brief life the label had a relatively high success rate compared to many other small British labels of the same era with some major UK hit singles by The Goodies, Sweet Dreams (3) and Stephanie De-Sykes.

There were three original acts on the label at the time of the label's launch: Paul Brett, Kala (9) and Hunter Muskett. After all three failed to catch on (and Kala getting dropped after refusing to switch from prog-rock to the highly-popular Glam style under pressure from company officials), they left the label and a new label head, Stewart Slater, shifted focus to singles.

The label's initial releases:
singles on 23/02/73 - BRAD 201, 302, 303 respectively
albums on 09/03/73 - BRADL 1001, 1002, 1003 respectively

The catalogue numbers of the releases in 1974 started with BRAD 74, the 1975 releases with BRAD 75 and those from 1976, BRAD 76.

Bradleys Records, headed by Derek Johns, launched in 1973 (not 1974) amongst considerable publicity (concerning one Alex Bradley and his hotel) . There were three original acts on the label:
Paul Brett, Kala, Hunter Muskett.

These released the following:
singles on 23/02/73 - BRAD 201, 302, 303 respectively
albums on 09/03/73 - BRADL 1001, 1002, 1003 respectively

The discography on this site omits this period entirely
