Independent label: Magnum Records was an outlet for recordings made by Magnum Studios, in Hyde, which seems to have been a custom recording concern.  If catalogue numbers are anything to go by it issued at least nine records in or around 1975, albums and singles alike sharing the same MAG-0000 numerical series.  There may well have been more than nine: it is the nature of custom pressings to be difficult to trace.  The two examples of its products haven't had a label identification on them as such, though they do at least have 'A Magnum Production' on them.  Therapy's album, 'Bringing The House Down' (MAG-0009; 1975) mentions Magnum on the sleeve along with one Phil Hampson, who was presumably the studio's owner.  The Surevision single, 'Season of '75' (MAG-0005; 1975) is slightly odd: a bit Proggy, with brass and with people singing 'Surevision, season of '75' over it, it sounds as though it is a promotional record for some kind of company.  The 'B' side is an instrumental version of the 'A' side.  The injection-moulded label suggests that pressing was by Phonodisc.
