Manticore Singles

Discography


Manticore Records was not only the own record and production label of Emerson, Lake & Palmer. It was also stepping stone for a handfull, so far rather unknow, bands or artists.

Manticore issued new and re-released material by that group as well as new recordings by a number of other artists, such as Keith Christmas, Stray Dog and Italian Prog group P.F.M. Primarily an LP label, it registered a minor Singles hit with Keith Emerson's, 'Honky Tonk Train Blues'. It also found a Christmas classic in Greg Lake's 'I Believe In Father Christmas'.
Distribution of the first few UK singles (prefixed 'HEVY') was by RCA; but WEA took over and re-released 'Celebration' (HEVY 2) with a WEA catalogue number (K 13501). From 1975 singles in the WEA group tended to have a medium-sized 'A' on the A-side; Manticore singles were no exception.
In the US Manticore were first distributed by Atlantic Records (prefixed 'MC'). From 1975 Motown Records took over the distribution (prefixed 'MA') until Manticore were closed in 1977.

Manticore singles were only released in this countries:
France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom and United States.
