Independent label: BGS Productions operated out of Strathaven, in Scotland, in the 1970s; the company was later to move to Kilsyth, Glasgow. It operated at least two labels, BGS Chord and Country House; singles and albums on both labels shared the same BGC-100 numerical series, though later singles had a '7S' between the prefix and the number. Not many BGS records appear in catalogues or online, which makes giving dates of operation difficult. Dougie Stevenson has kindly given a start date: its first records came out in 1973.  The green-labelled Ovation single, 'Lovey Dovey' (BGC-139), has a matrix number of DER-1222, which, if it is one of the series used by Deroy would give a year of release of 1975, which seems about right. Alan Grant's 'Story Of A Starry Night' (BGC-126), which was undated; its matrix number, DER-1170, would indicate 1974 or 75 for a Deroy pressing. By 1979 the label had acquired a new design, the single by, Duggie Small's version of the Beatles' 'Get Back' (BGC-244; 1979) was pressed by Lyntone (LYN-7715) and was distributed by Scotia. 1970s BGS Chord and Country House started at BGS-101. BGS is still in operation today, issuing records on its 'Scotdisc' label. and the Country House subsidiary was still operating in the mid '80s. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
