Independent American label: Hot Wax Records was from Detroit, Michigan. Hot Wax was one of a pair of labels started by the legendary songwriting and production team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland in 1969, after they left Motown; the other being Invictus Records.  During the four years of its existence it had a number of hits in its homeland but none in Britain.  Cash-flow problems led to its closure in 1973. Distribution in Britain was by EMI.  The label came in two different colour schemes, an early black-on-white and a later silver-on-black.  The years on the labels seem to apply to the U.S. releases, the British ones coming out later.  Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
