* The New Singles were a weekly listing of 45rpm recordings published by
Francis Antony Ltd, East Hill, St Austell, Cornwall. They were distributed to the music trade, media, record shops. We are working through the lists from Summer 1967 to Summer 1986. Some weeks (and occasionally for longer periods) the lists are missing from the archive but fortunately the weekly list also includes the previous two (and sometimes more) weeks releases...
