Independent American label: Grunt Records was a member of the RCA family, Grunt was owned by Jefferson Airplane / Starship and was used for that group's releases and solo projects. It started life in the summer of 1971, and, as far as Britain is concerned, issued records somewhat infrequently. Grunt enjoyed Singles Chart success in 1980, with Jefferson Starship's, 'Jane', and in 1987 with Starship's, 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now' - the latter reaching the No.1 spot.  The black label was the standard design, with the position of some of the credits changing in 1975 after several years of inaction.  The 'sun' label is apparently a one-off.  Grunt's first five singles were given the same catalogue numbers as their American counterparts, initially in a 65-0500 series, latterly in the FB-10000s; a discrete but short-lived RCG-1000 series followed.  Subsequent releases used the American numbers but dropped the initial '1', FB-11196 of the USA becoming FB-1196 over here.  The FB prefix was used for singles on Windsong, Midsong, Tattoo, New York International, Soul Train and Solar Records as well as Grunt.  Distributed By RCA Records.
