Independent label: Ace labels from the '70s was owned by Welsh singer David Alexander.  It seems to have been a family affair: Penny Page, who also recorded for Ace, was David Alexander's wife.  Alexander made his first single for Columbia in 1971 ('If I Could See The Rhondda One More Time'; DB-9044); he moved on to found his own company, and released a number of albums and singles over the years. Their numerical system seems a bit odd: ACE-78101 seems to have been followed by 78201 and then 79103; the series continued in the 79100s.  There was also a DAR-790.  The first two digits appears to refer to the year of issue, initially at least.  Ace operated from 433, Leasowe Road, Moreton, Wirral, Merseyside.  Sadly, David Alexander died in 1995. in Tenerife. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
