Mixcrest Records was a DIY label. It managed one single. 'Girl (How Am I Gonna Win You)' by T. J. Thorpe and the C. B. Band (MIX-1), was a 7" only at its narrowest point: it was actually seven-sided, and was grey in colour. The idea was that the record looked like a fifty-pence piece and it sold for fifty pence. A report says that the vinyl actually had some silver content, presumably for added authenticity. It also gives the name of the label chief as Tony Wolbrom and states that T. J. Thorpe had been a member of The Rubettes. 'Girl' was reissued on EMI International (INT-589) in May of that same year, but in standard black circular form. Distributed By Mixcrest Records.
