Independent label: NDS Records was Based in Shipley, NDS issued EPs aimed at the Ballroom Dancing market.  It also offered a distribution service for other Strict Tempo record companies.  The label started life in 1968, under the proprietorship of George F. Mott, as National Dance Services; initial releases came with a rather primitive but cheerful-looking label which was only 76mm wide - the norm is 85mm.  The company soon changed its name to the rather less ambitious-sounding Northern Dance Services and by the end of 1969 adopted full-sized labels  Re-pressings of the early records had the new-style large labels. Numbering of the 45 r.p.m. issues often used the initials of the artist as a prefix: examples shown are 'BR' for Bill Rayner, and 'HE' for Harry Engelman, but many others can be found in the discography below. 33 1/3 rpm EPs had a distinctive labels and were numbered in an 'LLP 33/0' series, 'LLP' standing for 'Little Long Player'. Most NDS EPs seem to have had picture sleeves; some had a customized company sleeve. The second sleeve may have been used for records distributed by NDS; the cardboard one without credits would seem to date from 1976.  The earliest pressings had matrix numbers in an 'ES EP 300' series, suggesting that Eroica Recording Services of Altrincham may have been responsible for them.  Later issues have 'AST EP' followed by the catalogue number, in an equally chunky lettering, reminiscent of that used by Deroy; AST was short for 'Astron Productions'.  Some records have Pye-style matrix numbers.  Many, perhaps all, of the recordings were made at Calrec Studios, Hebden Bridge.  According to the current guide to Bradford, Northern Dance Services is still in operation today (2006), but it doesn't seem to be still issuing records; Thanks to Robert Lyons for the info.
