ERIC COATES and the Chappell Recorded Music Library

One of Eric Coates' best known and loved compositions - BY THE SLEEPY LAGOON (alias the Desert Island Discs theme) started life as part of the Chappell Recorded Music Library.

The Chappell Library, was set-up in the early 1940s and has been supplying themes and background music for Radio, TV, Films and Audio Visual productions since that time.

The success of the catalogue owes much to the calibre of the original composers commissioned, one of the foremost being Eric Coates.

Before the advent of BBC Television on a national scale in the U.K., sound radio reigned supreme as the mass media for home entertainment. Audiences of tens of millions regularly tuned into their favourite programmes. Many of these programmes relied heavily upon library music for their signature tunes and one of Eric Coates' library compositions became nationally popular for this reason - By the Sleepy Lagoon.

Owing to demand from clients, in 1984, the Library re-released many of its most famous recordings. Included on the album was the above mentioned track. The album has met with such overwhelming support and interest from trade clients that a commercial release is planned for April '86 by Grasmere Records (disc ref. GRALP 10, cassette ref. GRTC 10) and will be distributed by EMI. For more information contact Ol 486 9531 - Bob Barratt.

London Calling C. 105
