(UK) EMBER 45 rpm EPs
1961 - 1965

     This hitherto unpublished Ember EP listing was compiled by Paul Pelletier in the 1980s. Whilst it has not had the benefit of access to company files as was the case with Ember singles, many of the entries have been verified from the actual record. Release dates have been difficult to accurately establish because of the practice by Ember of issuing press releases for records which subsequently did not appear as scheduled, and some EPs were re-promoted after their initial release. If licensed, the label of origin (American unless shown otherwise) is in the far right-hand column. It is not known who pressed Ember records (possibly British Homophone) but they were distributed by independent companies like Lugtons.
     Any additional information is welcome.
