Hallmark was a subsiduary of Pickwick Records launched in the UK in 1967. It is best remembered for the Top of the Pops series of LPs with featured soundalike cover versions of chart hits of the day housed in cheesecake covers. Almost 100 of these albums were released between 1968 and 1981 (some fools consider them collectable!) The rest of the catalogue consists of compilations and budget re-packagings including several by Irish artists, which are listed below.
