Hello, I am having trouble locating it, and it doesn't seem to be discoverable on the Internet. If someone can furnish the address of A&M Records Europe I'd be most appreciative. It's for a map project I'm putting together. Many thanks in advance!
Yes, the Europe office was set up in the late '70s to handle continental Europe, about the time they went to CBS distribution for Europe. I have the address somewhere in my files but can't get to them right away. All I'm missing is the actual number of the building, on Avenue Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 75008 Paris. That is the address I need. Thanks!
A&M's office in Paris was set up in 1977 to oversee the label's activities in continental Europe, as well as being the local office for France. Marcus Bicknell, who had formerly worked with the group Genesis, was its managing director. I know it was located on Ave. Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 75008 Paris but I don't know the number of the address.
My question about the Paris office(s) has now been answered, by no less an authority than Mr. Bicknell. He clarified that the office on 35 Ave. FDR was the first of two offices, and that A&M later moved to another location in Paris around 1980. The information was forwarded to me by fellow A&Mophile Rodney Davis. Many thanks to Marcus Bicknell, and to Rodney.
Thank you for the introduction to this site by Rodney Mark Davis - rmkosht - above. Indeed I was CEO A&M Records Europe for seven years 1976-1983 based in Paris. We looked after continental Europe i.e. not the UK which was headed by Derek Green, our distribution being with CBS Records with centralised manufacture for 16 countries. In that period our royalty income increased from $3m to $45m p.a. with Supertramp,Police and ChrisdeBurgh multi-platinum sellers.
We were renting at 35 Avenue Franklin D Roosevelt, Paris 8 until we moved in about 1980 to a historic building (Perret brotherrs, c.1920, in concrete) which we owned and renovated 95 Boulevard Murat, Paris 16. See the two images attached. I have some superstar photos which I will post on a new thread, A&M Records Europe in the 70s/80s hey-days. Do get in touch if you like [email protected]
