Independent label: of John Greenslade's 'Exeter Sound Recording' studio. ESR seems to have made custom recordings from around 1979 until at least 1991, though, as is the case with such concerns, its products are hard to trace and the dates are provisional. E.S.R. was responsible for the appearance several 7" records in an ESR-0 (later ESR-000) series during 1979-80, including 'Ain't No Van Gogh' by Silent Movies (ESR-1; 1979) and the Living Daylights' 'Heart Stop' EP (ESR-3; 1979). Manufacture of those two records was through custom recording firm SRT. As well as the the Exeter City F.C. single, 'Playing The Game' (ESR-005; 1980) there was another one, 'Swing Along With City', which had a label of the same design but different colouring - black printing on white. That single had no catalogue number on the label; it may perhaps be ESR-2, which is missing from the discography below. ESR resurfaced in 1983, with a new label design and a new catalogue series, SSR-0000; if catalogue numbers are anything to go by it appears to have managed at least eighteen releases, SSR-0018 coming out in January 1984.
