Independent American label: Hitsville Records was the Country Music division of Motown. In the States it started its short life (1975-77) as 'Melodyland', with a similar font and label design, and changed to Hitsville halfway through its six-album span. Its existence in Britain was even shorter - it came and went during 1977, without making any apparent impact. Just two singles and three albums were issued over here; demo copies of the singles seem to be commoner than issues. Manufacture and distribution were by EMI, as were those of Motown itself. .
