Independent Reggae and Soul label. Echo may have been run by Floyd Lloyd Seivreight. It started life in 1979, and issued 7" singles using two different numerical series, EC-7000, RB-000 and (in the 1980s) ECHO-0.  The first release was Donnie Elbert's 'Are You Ready' (EC-7001; 1979), which was pressed by Lyntone (LYN-6391/2); distribution was by Pinnacle, though 'Collins International' is credited on the label. The two RBs had no date on them. The few Echoes that did may have come out in the '70s are listed below.  Echo was replaced by Vista Sounds in the '80s, but records on the label continued to be issued until at least 1987; its issues in that decade were mostly in 12" form. The Floyd Lloyd single was reissued in 1982 in 7" and 12" form as ECHO-5, with a different 'B' side. Echo Records / Vista Sounds: Former address 25 Park Way, Burnt Oak, Edgware, Middlesex, and P.O. Box 164, Borehamwood, Herts. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
