| ||I'd read somewhere that there were some singles released by EMI before January 1953, but this is the first one I've seen. EMI started their series on HMV, MGM, Parlophone and Columbia at the beginning of '53, but their HMV label seems to have been given a head start.|
HMV had three series - 7P and 7R prefixes started in 1952 and the 7M series in 1953. The earliest 7P one seems to be 7P 104.
