Avco-Embassy Records was a DIY label. And one of those cases where a label doesn't seem to have had an actual name on it; but as Avco-Embassy Films was responsible for the record I've listed it under their name.  The record in question was a one-sided promotion-only single featuring Buffy Sainte-Marie's 'Soldier Blue', which was made in 1971 - the film of that name was a big hit in Britain that year.  The matrix number on the run-off was SBP-1 - presumably standing for 'Soldier Blue Promo' or something along those lines.  Manufacture was by RCA; the labels have that shine which appears to have been peculiar to early-'70s RCA pressings.  The vinyl is very thin.  'Soldier Blue' received a proper release that same year, backed with 'Moratorium', on RCA (RCA-2081). Distributed By Rca Records.
