* The New Singles were a weekly listing of 45rpm recordings published by
Francis Antony Ltd, East Hill, St Austell, Cornwall. They were distributed to the music trade, media, record shops. We are working through the lists from Summer 1967 to Summer 1986. Some weeks (and occasionally for longer periods) the lists are missing from the archive but fortunately the weekly list also includes the previous two (and sometimes more) weeks releases...
Addendum, January - March 1971. Industrial action resulted in the first ever Post Office strike which lasted FOR SEVEN WEEKS. As a consequence just three issues of the New Singles were printed in that period: 22nd January, 12th February and 12th March. No list was printed for 29th January, 5th February, 19th February, 26th February and 5th March 1971. To produce a reasonably accurate reflection of what was actually released in the intervening weeks we have referred to , Record Collector and Record Retailer...
