GOLD
RECORDS

Independent label: Gold Records is The first and foremost of two Gold labels from the '70s.  This particular version had a simple but rather attractive appearance, which was enhanced by the gold-coloured company sleeve.  It was one of the many companies which came under the President umbrella.  Gold doesn't appear to have had leanings in the direction of any particular musical genre.  It seems to have operated from 1976 to 1982, and catalogue numbers suggest that it released around eighteen singles, though I have failed to find any previous to GD-007.  The best-known name to appear on the label was that of humorist Frank Muir, with his spoken-word tale for children, 'What-A-Mess' (GDE-11; 1977), but neither his nor any of the other Gold records ever threatened the Charts.  Numbering was in a GD-000 series; GDE-00s were EPs.  For some reason the printing on GDE-11 was in red instead of the usual black. A single with the matrix number GD-011 appeared on the 1978 version of the 'Sticky Label' label, with the catalogue number STK-500, which would fill in one of the gaps in the discography.
