Legendary record label for Rock ‘n’ Roll and 50s / 60s singles. Grew out of a record store in London, launched in 1976. Today it is tucked away in a Cotswold valley just outside Stroud, but it still has plenty to shout about. Owned and run by John Beecher whose own career in the industry goes back to working for Southern Music Publishing in the 1960s where he first came into contact with The Crickets. John has been connected with J.I. Allison, Joe B.Mauldin and Sonny Curtis ever since releasing The Crickets recordings from across their career. In 1988 John made a significant move in purchasing the rights to Swan Records. A US label that boasts many rock n roll classics going back to the 1950s and including the main recordings by the master of grumbling guitar Link Wray. Latterly a number of Link Wray recordings have been used by TV and Film. The catalogue also contains some all time foot stomping northern soul gems including sides by The Showmen, The Three Degrees, Tony Galla, Eddie Carlton.
APM has worked with Rollercoaster since 2008 as it’s digital release partner and distributes all of Rollercoaster’s owned catalogue across all digital platforms.
