KPM has been around in one for or another since 1780 when it was originally founded by an instrument maker, Robert Keith, which gradually expanded to incorporate music publishing. At the turn of the 20th century the business was separated from the company’s other activities and began its golden era with the advent of television. It is known as a library music company and its main job was to supply affordable music to TV and radio (many of the classic TV and radio themes of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s came from companies such as KPM. Many of the classic library albums from KPM gradually began to seep out into the collector’s market and, from there, into producer’s samplers. Their original vinyl issues are extremely collectable and they are responsible for some of the classic library music of the ’60s, thanks to the vast array of brilliant sessioneers who played on them: Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield, Herbie Flowers, Barry Morgan, Syd Dale and former Shadow Brian Bennett.
