Independent label: Mint Records was a subsidiary of Emerald Records. Mint enjoyed quite a long existence, starting out in 1976 and continuing into the late '80s.  It boasted a varied catalogue: as well as Irish records it issued Disco, Pop, and at least one yodelling single - the Gilde Duo Distribution was by Decca for the first five singles, after which time the label switched to President.  In 1978 there was change of layout and of distributor, to which company, I haven't been able to discover: the look of the label and the (p) suggests that the example shown is an Irish record - were they pressed in Ireland and some copies imported to England, or were there British pressings?  In 1979 first Wynd Up and then Spartan took over the task of distribution; Mint remained with Spartan for several years.  At some point in the '80s Mint's colour changed from ordinary mint to a fresher peppermint.  The company never got any of its records into the Singles Chart, but it served its niche market effectively.   Numbers, which had started at CHEW-1, reached CHEW-120 in 1987.  Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
