Independent label: Different records appeared in two different colour schemes: silver-on-pink one, and, from HAVE-15 onwards, a more legible black-on-pink one. The label was set up by Lynton Guest, once of the band Love Affair, in 1977; he is reported to have sold it to Charisma in 1982 after he became too ill to keep an interest in it. Some of the material on Different originally appeared on labels in Rupert Cunningham's 'Tropical' labels family, which may well indicate that he had some involvement with Different. The label's output seems to have lived up to its name, ranging from Reggae to choral recordings of Frank Sinatra's 'My Way' and the New Seekers' 'I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing'.  If catalogue numbers are anything to go by, it would seem to have put out at least twenty singles, in a HAVE-0 numerical series. Not all the numbers were used.  Numbers 1, 5 and 7 were 12" singles, and had a 'HAVE D' prefix. Different independent manufacturer were responsible for the pressings, a few singles have been Decca pressings. Distribution was by Selecta. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
