Beware!

A subsiduary of Pickwick Records, established in 1979, active until 1983 approx.

Harp licensed several 1970s titles from the Hawk, Play and Release catalogues, repackaged them in new covers, and released them at bargain prices without any information about their origin. While some might say all Country & Irish stuff tends to sound the same anyway, disguising reissues in this way was just adding insult to injury!

The Harp imprint was taken over by Stoic Records in the mid-80s, with some copies bearing stickers over the Pickwick name showing the new parent label name.
