Tangerine Records is a UK-based independent record label founded in 1992 by musician Paul Bevoir, music journalist Chris Hunt and marketing executive John Ashworth.[1]

History[edit]

Launching with a compilation of previously released material by The Jetset, throughout the 1990s the label specialised in reissuing CDs of collectable vinyl recordings, focusing on the mod, psychedelic, power pop and bubblegum pop genres. Acts released by the label have included The Jetset,[2] The Moment,[3] Direct Hits, Squire,[4] The Cleaners From Venus,[5] Dee Walker,[6] Paul Bevoir [7] and The V.I.P.'s.

Many of their early releases were showcased on the Tangerine Records compilation Come On Peel The Noise.[8] The compilation also included several bands who did not have complete albums released on the label, such as Smalltown Parade,[9] Mood Six, Melvyn and the Smartees and The Candees.

The label was refocused in 2004, moving away from the crowded re-issues market and it began to release newly recorded material, including a series of albums and singles by the band Rinaldi Sings.
