FUNKA&MERICA
RECORDS

Independent label: FunkA&Merica Records is debatable whether it's actual label as such, but it had its own dedicated label design and sleeve so I've decided to give it the benefit of the doubt.  From the summer of 1978 for a period of around twelve months an occasional series of records were released by A&M under the 'FunkA&Merica' banner.  Most of them were three-track maxi-singles but a few only had two tracks.  There was a matching 12" series, which had the same numbers but AMSP prefixes.  The name tells you what the music on the records was like.  The sleeves had the same basic design, but each one listed the titles that were on the single and featured a picture of the group.  Catalogue numbers were taken from the main A&M AMS-7000 series.  I think that the discography below lists all of the '70s releases but I'm open to correction.  FunkA&Merica was revived in 1982 for a short period, with the same design of label and sleeves; catalogue numbers for those singles were in the USA-2200s (USAF-2200s for 12").
