Independent Scottish label: Lismor Records was based in Glasgow and was started by Peter Hamilton, in 1973, as an offshoot of his chain of four record shops. It concentrated on Gaelic material, and was mainly an LP label. Its first single, 'Mo Dhachaidh', by Alastair Clark Gillies (LISP-2001) came out in December 1973. Four singles were the only ones released in the '70s, the next in the series not appearing until 1981.  In 1980 Hamilton sold the company, and the one remaining shop, to former agent and promoter Ronnie Simpson.  Under Simpson's guidance Lismor expanded; it is still going today, with a catalogue which varies from bagpipe tutorials to folk-rock.   The few singles which came out appeared sporadically, were numbered in a LISP-2000 series, and seem to have been distributed by the company itself. Distributed By Lismor, Stiffs and Virgin Records.
