Recreational Records

Revolver Records, Bristol, were a record store and distributor (also a part of the Cartel group of distributors).

They launched their own label Recreational Records in 1981 with The X-Certs 7" single 'Together/Untogether' (PLAY 1). The final release in 1982 was the 7" single by Animal Magic, 'Standard Man/Trash That Blad' (SPORT 8).

Some singles were released in 7" and 12" versions, however 'Get It Right' by Animal Magic (SPORT 52) only came as a 12”.

In the early 80's they sent out at least 2 promotional cassette samplers, with Recreational Records headed press releases, featuring tracks from across the Revolver records catalogue & some possibly unreleased material. The second sampler included tracks by Scream & Dance, Ivory Coasters, Oxy & the Morons (with Robert Wyatt), Talisman, and Riot City bands Expelled & The Undead.
