Discography & collection

I've just returned from a trip to Cornwall, where, amongst other things, I picked up a few more Sentinel releases. I've updated the discography accordingly.
Also, here is my collection so far. I'm still missing a few releases (detailed below), and there are still some catalogue numbers lacking any details at all. If anyone out there has any items for sale or further info on the holes in the numbering system, don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks!





SENS 1015:??
SENS 1018: Marian Cresswell - Marian (Easy Listening Piano)

SENS 1019: Climax Choir – Born In Song 2
SENS 1039: Holman Climax Choir – Collected Hymns and Sacred Songs
SENS 1050: Camborne Town Band – Camborne in Concert
SENS 1057: St Austell Youth Band


Plus most 45s/EPs.
Also any obscure Cornwall-related pop/folk/rock releases.

  1. Awesome collection! 👍 I've recently started collecting Sentinel releases.... More because they are "local interest" than for the music to be honest. 😀 Didn't realise there is such an extensive back cat.... I've got a long way to go. Cheers

    1. Thanks for your comments. I can't deny that generally the appeal of these records is the social history aspect rather than the music (as maybe you'll realise if you read any of the reviews on this blog!), but now & then, something leaps out from the male voice choirs & silver bands that surprises me and makes the search worthwhile.
      There is indeed quite a substantial catalogue there; good luck!

  4. I own Job Morris's house, from where Sentinel records logo was inspired. I have a copy of Sounds like West Cornwall that he gave me as a child!!

    1. Hi,
      Thanks. Wow! Where is the house? And what is the island/rocky outcrop pictured on the label?
