Independent label: Mandal Records was a DIY label. It managed at least one singles. 'The Christening' b/w 'Bubbling All Over' by Julie Kennedy had a catalogue number of T-1003, which suggests that there should be at least two previous Mandal singles. There was a single on the Concord label with those two titles by Julie Devon with the Roger Wade Orchestra and Singers (CON-009; 1970); was this perhaps a reissue with a changed artist credit?  If it was, the '1970' on its label may be misleading, which would explain the gap in time between it and Dante's 'All Is Said' (WAN-1), which seems to be from five years later. Another gap followed, this time of two years, before the third single came out: Lovin' Silk's 'Silver Jubilee' b/w 'Bubbling All Over' (868-AH; 1977).  The Dante and Lovin' Silk singles were produced by Tony Pike (see 'Tepee'), which suggests that he may have been involved in Mandal.
