MUSIC AND MEMORIES OF THE 30S & 40S (Series)

 


By 1999, the most profitable part of Reader’s Digest music in the UK was the series business. A huge promotion was put into the first volume of the series, and then the customers would receive a new volume every two months until the figures dropped too low to make the series profitable (normally between 10 to 15 volumes). The concepts were researched, and it looked like the series ‘Music & Memories Of The 30s & 40s’ would make the most profit. Not only were the usual processes of easy sales with less promotion, in place, but, in theory, the recordings would all be out of copyright, and therefore cheaper to obtain. Obviously the one’s holding the ‘purse strings’ failed to allow for the extra time and expense of actually obtaining these ancient recordings (and the costs of cleaning them up from old, scratched, 78 shellac discs), but they also failed to realise that using recordings, once owned by the major record labels, would upset future licensing arrangements with these companies. None the less, the series went ahead and it was eventually agreed that RD would pay full licensing fees on all the recordings, even though, at the time, legally, it was not necessary. Promotion stressed that it could be the ‘last chance’ to obtain these recordings, (the actual truth was it was the last time, most people would ever want them) the most popular recordings were actually re-issued by the record company owners therefore circumnavigating the rules around copyright, and so are still available today. Delayed, because of the problems previously mentioned, the series was delivered quite eratically, and so failed to last as long as maybe it could have done. However this collection became a fine, unique, series of recordings from the period, and along with fascinating booklet notes by writer Tony Watts, become a highly collectable set of recordings. it did also however, become the last RD series to be worked on by myself, fellow compiler and good friend, Bill Salthouse, Engineer and Producer extraordinaire, Paddy Marchant, as well as being the only series worked on by consultant Colin Brown, whose career as a producer of records for Pye, President and Phillips and compiler for Decca, Empress and Rex, was invaluable in creating the series.

Originally, to this point, series had been released in ‘strength of concept’ order based on research, my suggestion that a ‘weaker’ concept led the initial promotional push, so that the stronger following concepts would encourage the collector mentality and slow down drop off from the series proved highly successful and was used on all future series.


As with other series, some titles were also eventually promoted and sold as individual albums within the catalogues.
