BLACK MOUNTAIN
RECORDS

 independent label from Llandeilo, Swansea, owned by Mike Evans. Black Mountain started out in 1974 and is still in business today. Its first three records were by comedian / singer Ryan Davies, whom Evans managed, but after Ryans's death (in 1977) the label continued. Its output seems to have been varied - there were albums by another comedian, Kenny Smiles, and by Folk trio Triban, as well as more middle-of-the-road material. Eventually, however, it appears to have concentrated upon recordings of choirs. Singles and albums shared the same BM-0 numerical series; two singles from the '70s, Ryan Davies' 'La La La' (BM-1; 1974), and 'Summer of '42' (BM-3; 1979), which was credited to Ryan. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
