Independent label: Hillside Records was a custom-recording concern from Levington Road, Ipswich, Suffolk. The Hillside studio and label were run by Richard and David Allison.  The company issued both 7" and 12" records.  The EPs had catalogue numbers in the HIL EP-4000s. Singles were numbered in a 'HIL SP-5000' series.  The fare on offer appears to have been the usual Club / Cabaret / Country stuff, though full marks for inventive names must be given to the Pea Green Symphonic Pullover Set, whose EP (HIL EP-4012) was issued in 1979.  The Pea Greens also made a self-financed album, with SRT Records.  Another Hillside band with an adventurous name were the Plimsoll Sandwich, who made an album called 'For Night Starvation'.  Whether the contents of the grooves were as interesting as the names remains a matter for conjecture.  As is always the case with private-pressing firms, Hillside's dates of operation are reported to have been in business in 1975 and that they were still going in 1981. Distributed By Hillside Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
