Independent Folk label from Daventry. Cottage was run by singer/songwriter John Golding; it started out in 1974 and doesn't appear to have lasted past 1983. It mainly issued albums, it also released at least a couple of EPs by The Occasional Few in the 1970s. A third EP, by the Green Tones Showband, followed in 1980.  For some reason the company's cottage logo was omitted from the first of the EP's labels, but it appeared on the others. LPs and EPs shared the same numerical series.  Cottage's numbering system was odd: instead of the last digit changing, the first one did - thus the first record was numbered COT-101, the second COT-201, the third COT-301, and so on.  When the first digit reached nine, the first digit of the next record went back to one and the second digit increased by one - thus COT-901 was followed by COT-111, then COT-211, COT-311, and so forth. 911 was followed by 121, and 921 by 131, etc, etc. COT-831, a 1983 album by the Green Tones Showband.
