  • Description

    Founded in 1976 Fellside Recordings created two labels, Fellside (Folk) and Lake (Jazz), which in the intervening 42 years have gone on to become two of the UK's leading labels for their genres.

    The company has released over 600 albums which is a remarkable achievement considering that it has been run by just two people, Paul and Linda Adams.

    Between them the labels have won numerous awards for their products and their artists from The Music Retailers Association, BBC Folk Awards, British Jazz Awards and many more.

    Fellside has launched the careers of artists such as Jez Lowe, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan, Spiers & Boden, Ewan McLennan, Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar as well as relaunching the careers of artists such as Bob Fox, Swan Arcade and Pete Morton.

    Lake had an extensive reissue programme featuring classic albums from 1950s and 60s British Jazz alongside working with artists such as Acker Bilk, Chris Barber and Humphrey Lyttelton.

    Lake also recorded current bands like The Bateman Brothers, The Charleston Chasers, The Jake Leg Jug Band and Hot Fingers.

    On top of that the Smallfolk label was created for an album of the music from the children's TV show 'Bagpuss'.

    This triple album set is both a reflection and a celebration marking the end of an era.

    It features tracks specially recorded for the compilation by many of the leading names the labels have worked with as well as previously unreleased archive recordings which not only connect to the labels, but also reflect Paul and Linda's musical life as well.
