Welcome to my on-line tribute to the London based Chiswick label. Started in 1975 and, under various guises, still going strong to this day, Chiswick put out some of my favorite records ever. Here you'll find an ever growing collection of info, record sleeves, old advertisements and whatever comes to mind. So dig in and enjoy!

101'ers - Keys To Your Heart (French pressing)

101'ers - Keys To Your Heart/5 Star Rock 'n' Roll Petrol
Chiswick 640.122, 1977 France.

The French part of the Chiswick discography is still somewhat of a mystery to me. It seems like Barclay picked up the rights in early 1977, but I have no idea how many discs were actually released. Over the years I've only seen Johnny Moped's No One, this 101'ers 45 that is highly desirable among Clash fans c/o it's unique picture sleeve, while the booklet in The Chiswick Records Story mentiones several others as well. By 1979 Pathé Marconi started importing and distributing Ace releases in France, and copies of these discs can be recognized by the various stickers with French price-codes and/or "Import Angleterre"...
