Caedmon Records was a DIY label. It managed at least one singles it had a Lyntone cat number. Reportedly this single was pressed up and included with the album (SSR-001) because there wasn't space on the LP for all the tracks that the band wanted to put on it. All the tracks were recorded at the Barclay Towers studio in Edinburgh. Caedmon was Named after a seventh-century Anglo-Saxon poet-monk, CAEDMON began as a trio of veterinary students from Edinburgh University in 1973. Originally they started with Andy Love on guitar, Angela Naylor on vocals and Ken Patterson on multiple instruments. The group's early repertoire consisted of traditional folk and spirituals, as well as cover tunes. The band expanded to a quartet the following year and managed to stretch out their touring career nearly six years before disbanding where they began (at Edinburgh) in 1978. The band's only studio album came as a result of a self-financed and produced private label recording with a pressing of just 500 copies. The band miscalculated the length of their tracks and ended up issuing a single that accompanied the vinyl album and which contained what would become tracks 6 and 12 on the 2002 Kissing Spell CD reissue.
