Musical Rendezvous, the budget record company set up by Philips and Polydor, introduces its own Contour label in June 1971. The launch will be backed by a massive marketing campaign, a consumer competition being organized with the Ford Moter company and television advertising.
Contour will eventually be launched throughout the world by the Philips-Polydor companies and it will release both original and Philips-Polydor product.
The label was previewed in May 1971 to the Musical Rendezvous sales before, consisting of 20 salesmen and four regional managers, under the slogan, "Sounds To Spoil You."
The initial release, available 25th. June, consists of 20 albums, seve taken from the Philips catalog, eight from Polydor and five original recordings for Musical Rendezvous.

Pickwick Records was an American record label and British distributor known for its budget album releases of sound-alike recordings, bargain bin reissues and repackagings under the brands Design. It was the first UK company to put in place exclusive licensing deals with the major record companies (for many years it was the official budget reissue outlet for labels such as RCA and CBS.)
