Independent label: Mushroom Records. Early 1970s London, UK based label, founded by Vic Keary, Mike Craig and Neil Richmond. Recordings took place at Chalk Farm Studios, London. "The first batch of releases came out on April 1st, 1971" (Fraser Massey). Revived by Keary as GBM Records in the mid-90s.  It seems to have concentrated mainly on Folk and Indian music, sometimes separate and sometimes - as in the LP by Magic Carpet - mixed together.   Mushroom didn't issue many singles, but those that did surface were numbered in the 50MR-00s.  The company appears to have been operative from 1970-72.  Distribution was by Lugton / H. R. Taylor / Clyde Factors in 1972. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
