BBC Record prices

Fact number 2

Was the price you paid for a BBC Record based on the catalogue number?

Posted by Mike (2021-03-17).

From the "Main" catalogue, all BBC Singles and BBC Albums started with RE.

The singles (RESL) were the same price for all singles at any one time.

The albums however, were not!

First BBC Singles label This image shows the prices from 1972, if only they costed this now! It shows the pricing structure at the time.

Unfortunately, later catalogues don't include that information but from my experience the same idea of pricing continued until the end.
