 klepsie: Be aware also that, because of how it had originated, Polydor had no pressing plant, less than brilliant distribution, and abysmal sales for the vast majority of those of its artists it bothered to import into the UK.. No major American music co. exec. in their right - or their left - mind would have signed up for UK distribution solely by Polydor, nor licensed recordings they originated to them unless they'd failed to place them with anyone else - ATV-Pye/atv's pye record group was preferable to Polydor through the late sixties/early seventies...

The Polydor Group's best selling artists in the UK through 1967-8 and maybe on into the early-mid seventies were James Last, and Bert Kaempfert.)(source, Bert Kaempfert interviewed in a documentary about the James Last phenomenon, and James Last, the person. Kaempfert credited last with outselling him, too, and doing so quite comfortably.)

 Scans added. It seems to me a little odd that so obscure a US artist as Tommy Zang was given a string of five UK releases (and on Polydor, yet, hardly the label you'd expect if a Hickory country singer was to get a British pressing). Anyone know how and why?
