Independent label: GFR Records no company name on the label, but as its catalogue number was GFR-001 I have taken the prefix as being the label's name, which may not in fact be the case.  That record was the one shown above, an EP, 'Opening Gambit', by Singer / Songwriter Steve Chilcott.  As the label details indicate, it was recorded in Manchester; at Smile Sudios, which had its own 'Smile' label.  There was a second GFR record, 'Planxty Irwin' (GFR-002; S82-CUS-471), which was pressed by SRT and came out in 1982.  That had a gypsy caravan on the label, so perhaps the 'G' stood for 'Gypsy'. Distributed By GFR Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
