WIRL / TREX 45 Discography

Brief history of WIRL from the 1987 compilation album “Recollection”:

“West Indies Records Limited (B’DOS) Ltd, started manufacturing phonograph records during the month of October 1964. This project was the brainchild of Mr. Colin Wilkie, who was the manager of Manning’s Electrical Showroom and Mr. Colin Thomas, director of Manning, Wilkinson & Challenor Ltd. As was expected, the availability of pressing plant in Barbados encouraged many local artistes to have their work recorded and put on wax. Since at that time there were no professional recording studios on the island, local recordings were successfully accomplished using one-track studios at Barbados Redifussion Services Ltd. on River Road and CBC (Caribbean Broadcast Corp) located at Black Rock, St. Michael. Much credit must be giving to the engineers and the Disc Jockies of that era who successfully recorded these artistes with the limited technology available. The first album to be manufactured in Barbados was “TreasureChest” by the Merrymen of Barbados.”

The WIRL / TREX discography is compiled and researched by Geoff Carrington (Barbados), Jan Hofman (The Netherlands), Alfred Benjamin (Barbados/Brooklyn) Andreas Vingaard (Denmark / USA) with valuable contributions by Valerie Clark (Librarian, UWI, Barbados), Rainer Windisch (konzeptlos.com / Switzerland), Paolo Annicchiarico (Italy), Hugo Mendez (Sofrito / UK), Adam Dunbar (latinfunk.org / USA), A Man Called Warwick (Turning Point, Canada), Nick Balaam (UK), Andy Eldica Westbury (Eldica Records, UK), Jacob Graulund (Fyraftensboogie, Denmark) and Warren Hill.
