Independent label: Gull Records was Owned by Gull Entertainments Ltd and Set up in 1974 by Derek Everett, Monty Babson and David Howells, it was associated to Morgan Sound Studio, Gull had an eclectic approach to the music business, releasing albums in the areas of Folk-Rock (Steve Ashley), Jazz-Rock (Isotope, If), Kraut-Rock (Kraan) and just plain Rock (Judas Priest).  It seems somewhat odd, then, that the company's biggest-selling single should be a novelty record - 'Barbados' by Typically Tropical, which went to No.1 in 1975.  That said, Gull weren't averse to issuing the occasional novelty record in among their Pop and Disco singles.  For the first three years of the label's life its products were manufactured by Decca and Distributed by Selecta, but in July 1978 Pye took over both tasks.  The basic label design remained the same but the typefaces changed slightly and a reference to Pye replaced the reference to Decca at the bottom of the label.  Numbering was in a GULL-0 series which was basically unaffected by the changeover, though numbers seem to have jumped from GULS-47 to GULS-50 at the time; at least one Decca-era single had an 'R' added to its prefix, indicating licensing restrictions.  Gull kept going into the '80s, its releases were somewhat sporadic. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
