 The World Record Club Ltd. issued records and reel-to-reel tapes through a membership mail-order system during the 1950s and 1960s. In addition to titles imported from recording companies like Everest Records and Westminster Records, it made a series of recordings of international artists using its own engineers. Although often of great musical interest and very acceptable technical quality, these recordings did not appear in shop catalogues of the time as they were not available new through record shops. The label was taken over by EMI in 1965 but continued to be used as a sub-label for mail order, covering a wide range of musical genres, and distributing in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
