Independent label: Abbot Sound Studios, of Chester, it has its own matrix series, AS-0, and it dates from the 1970s. an EP of highlights from a 1974 Llandudno 'Startime' variety show, starring British Music Hall veteran Alex Munro.  A circular label giving the barest of credits has been pasted over the original white label; you have to look at the run-off to find that the catalogue number was AS-4, and Abbot Sound Studios is only mentioned on the picture sleeve.  The run-off also has 'DER' on it, indicating that the EP was made through Deroy.  Abbot Sound was owned by Bob Turner of the Black Abbots band; the studio engineer and session guitarist when needed was Mick John.  It was a custom recording business - a firm that was paid by the artists to make records, as opposed to the usual sort of record company which pays artists to make records.
