Independent American label: Lifesong Records was owned by singers / songwriters / producers Terry Cashman and Tommy West, and was named after one of the albums they had made as a duo.  It operated from 1975 into the early '80s, though its output towards the end was sporadic, and it was more successful in the States than over here; though Henry Gross (once, with 'Shannon'; 1976) and Dean Friedman (three times, with 'Woman of Mine', 'Lydia', and 'Lucky Stars'; all 1978) took it into the British Singles Charts, which isn't a bad hit ratio from nine singles.  'Lucky Stars' in fact got to No.3.  Lifesong was licensed to GTO on these islands, so wherever GTO went Lifesong went: it started out under the Polydor umbrella, which explains the injection-moulded label, and moved to CBS in 1978.  Its catalogue numbering series changed in the process, from ELS-45000 (these numbers were those of the corresponding American issues) and ELS-3500 to LS-400. Distributed By Polydor and GTO Records.
