2009 is a landmark year for many independent record labels. It sees the anniversaries of Motown and Island (both 50), Rough Trade (30) and Real World (20). But it is Topic Records that celebrates its 70th anniversary. This makes it the oldest, truly independent record company in the world and an extremely sprightly, almost ageless senior citizen compared to the above �youngsters�.\r\n\r\n\r\n

To celebrate this significant moment in Topic's illustrious history, the label is proud to publish Three Score and Ten, a sumptuous 7 CD set complete with a hardback 108 page book, charting seven decades of recording and social history. Three Score & Ten has been produced, researched and curated by �the redoubtable David Suff, Fledg�ling Records supremo and one of the leading authorities on folk and folk-rock,� and comes with a complete Topic records discography, listing every release from 1939 � 2009.\r\n\r\n

Topic Records has been home to, amongst many others, Paul Robeson, Pete Seeger, Vanessa Redgrave and Ewan MacColl, through to Nic Jones, Shirley Collins, Dick Gaughan, Martin Carthy, The Watersons, June Tabor, John Tams and Martin Simpson, to the current generation, including the multi award-winning Eliza Carthy.\r\n\r\n

The 7CD box set is out now. \r\n
