MOTOR CITY RYTHEM
RECORDS

Independent label: Motor City Rhythm Records was from Birmingham.  Judging by catalogue numbers Motor City Rhythm seems to have issued at least six singles in 1979-80. One of the singles (the first?), Leargo's 'Played Out Angel', used a number from the DNS label's series, DNS-87903, but the rest had their own dedicated MCR-100 series.  The music covered a variety of styles, from the New Wave / Punk of The Daze's 'I Wanna Be A Star' (MCR-101; 1979) through the Reggae of 'She's Gone' by Eclipse (MCR-103; 1980) to the NWOBHM of the Starfighter single shown above, 'I'm Falling' (MCR-105; 1980).  The label of the Daze record was light-blue and black rather than red and black. Distributed By Motor City Rhythm Records.
