The first Fantasy label to appear in Britain in the 1970s
was a short-lived home-grown affair, from Bexleyheath in Kent. It
seems to have issued just two records, both of which were aimed at
children. Numbering was in an FY-0 series. FY-1 was an
album, 'Six Traditional Folk And Fairy Tales', which was issued in 1968 and was narrated by Howard Williams. FY-2 appears to
have been anonymous, but it was an EP and
thus it qualifies the label for this site. It was called 'The
Adventures Of Mr. Switchit', and it came out
on the 28th of October 1972, with distribution by Lugton and H. R.
Taylor. Sadly I haven't managed to track down a copy of that
EP as yet, so I've put up a scan of the
LP label as a make-weight. If you can supply a scan of the EP I'd
be glad to hear from you.
