Anchor Records was a British record label, founded in 1974 by Ian Ralfini. The label had strong ties with American ABC Records, who were also co-founders of Anchor. ABC marketed and distributed Anchor releases in the US, while ABC releases were frequently sold in the UK as "ABC Records Marketed by Anchor Records."
The most successful act on Anchor was the English pub-rock band Ace, but most of the Anchor albums, including the Ace ones, failed to make any impact and could be frequently found in the bargain bins of record stores. The one album that is of collector's interest today, is Anchor's final release, the 1978 Donna McGhee album that was issued shortly before Anchor went out of business when ABC Records was sold and absorbed to MCA Records.
