Brian Adams and his son Terry, the owners of The Store For Music Ltd, have purchased the company and label Angel Air from the original owners Peter and Shirley Purnell who set it up 25 years ago. The label, which operates under the motto, “Where the artiste has a voice”, has a catalogue of hundreds of global CD and DVD releases from many heritage artistes and individual musicians from many genres.
The Store for Music plans are to expand all activities for the label where it may not be represented and similarly merge the activities of Angel Air for any benefits to The Store for Music.
The team said, “We understand that it will be a hard job to follow such a successful period from Peter & Shirley, but it is one that we look forward to. We hope to have the same kind of relationships with the artistes and managers as they did, whilst we continue to build and develop the catalogue into the future adding some of the artistes’ ‘hidden gems’ “.
The Store for Music and Angel Air are now based in Hatch Farm Studios, Hatch Farm, Chertsey Road, Surrey KT152EH

In 2016, the legendary guitarist and composer Gordon Giltrap underwent two lots of major surgery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. He recovered remarkably well from both surgeries and has since been able to return to his life as a working musician.
Gordon decided as a way of saying thank you to the surgeons and nursing team at the hospital, he would create an album from a previous release with additional new tracks to raise money for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity.
The end result is a remarkable work entitled Heartsongs featuring major artists from the rock world who played on the opening track and the closing track. Names familiar to many like, Brian May of Queen, Midge Ure, Steve Howe from Yes, Neil Murray from Black Sabbath, Simon Phillips from Toto, and last but not least that national treasure Rick Wakeman.
Whilst putting the album together Gordon’s son Jamie tragically passed away. This album is dedicated to his memory.
“Souled Out” is taken from Glamweazel’s forthcoming album “The Great Unknown”, released in September on Angel Air Records.
“Neil Young In The Dark” is taken from The Ugly Guys’ new album “Senior Moments”, available from Angel Air Records.
