Music For Pleasure

Music For Pleasure

Profile:
Originally a British label; also appears as "MFP" only.
Label Code: LC 00464 / LC 0464
Label started in 1965 as a joint venture between Hamlyn and EMI Records, selling low cost re-issues and also some original material. EMI provided the music and Hamlyn the publishing. The logo around this time has 'Paul Hamlyn' and 'EMI Records' circling the 'mfp' logo.

MFP had offices in various cities including Amsterdam, Brussels, Johannesburg, Köln, London, Sydney, Paris and Stockholm.

At some point in the early seventies Hamlyn pulled out and EMI took control. MFP remained an independent company in Belgium. Also at this time a parallel label, Sounds Superb, was created.

MFP carried on throughout the '70s, but at the start of the '80s ran into trouble. This was due to changes in technology and major label rationalisations. MFP ended up as little more than a worldwide distribution network.

From the 3rd April 2006 MFP was revived under the control of EMI Gold.

Please note, the '60s and '70s series of records for children with the Surprise Surprise logo should be entered under that label name. These records have catalogue numbers beginning with 'No', 'Number' or FP. Please note that MFP later used the FP prefix for other releases. All singles released in the '80s with an FP cat# prefix are Music For Pleasure and not Surprise Surprise.
