BBC Albums - Radioplay Music (Best of Radioplay) - RPLA discovery

These BBC Radioplay Music discs are re-issues of tracks released in the original TAIR Library. These were exclusively pressed to the British Broadcasting Corporation for use in its radio broadcasts. BBC Radioplay LPs & CDs were produced solely for broadcast by BBC radio stations and featured recordings that were free from Copyright, containing tracks recorded by the BBC (or partner organisations in Europe, USA etc). A number were live recordings, but there are also versions of well known songs recorded in the radio stations studios. For the vinyl LPs the front sleeves were usually of exactly the same design, with a picture of the featured artist & title being the only difference. The rear sleeve notes the title, tempo, intro, duration, end, composer, publisher and blurb related to the track (so the presenter could appear knowledgable!) BBC Radioplay LPs have some unique recordings, and as they were usually pressed by companies like Nimbus and were for broadcast, the quality of the production and pressing is usually very high. All CDs prefaced with the TAIRCD reference. CDs were manufactured at the Nimbus plant. "BBC Radioplay Music is not available to the public."
