Independent American label: Mums Records was owned by film producers Hal Landers and Bobby Roberts.  It was longer-lived (1971-74) and more successful in the States than over here, but it registered one hit in the British Singles Charts: Albert Hammond's, 'Free Electric Band' (MUMS-1494; 1973).  Distribution in Britain was by CBS; Mums shared a numerical sequence with the other CBS labels, which explains the high catalogue numbers.  In 1974 the company was sold to Epic; its artists were transferred to that label in the States, but in Britain the new owners seem to have kept the Mums marque going until the following year.
