Independent Folk label, run by Steve Hutt.  Avada lasted from 1978 to 82, and issued about a dozen records. Most of them were LPs but there were at least four seven-inches, which are listed below.  None of them are commonly seen nowadays. The first, Phil Beer's 'Dance With Me' was numbered in the AVS-100s (AVS-101), but subsequent issues shared the main LP series's AVA-100 numbers, albeit with a different prefix in the case of the Arizona Smoke Review EP (AVEP-108; 1980); the single by Les Barker, 'Quasi B. Goode' (AVS-112; 1980) shared the LP numbering but went back to the AVS prefix.  Avada's most collectable item is an album by Nigel Mazlyn Jones, 'Sentinel' (AVA-105; 1979). Avada Records Former Address: 19 Clarence Square Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
