Independent label: NSC Records was a label of the New Sound Crusaders Steel Band.  The only record on NSC that has turned up so far is the one shown, the band's 'Let's Jump And Dance' b/w 'Let's Jump And Dance (Version)'.  There's no date on the label, sadly, so it may not be from the '70s, but the New Sound Crusaders won 'Opportunity Knocks' in 1971 and had a couple of albums out on Chapter One Records in that year - an eponymous one (LRS-5006) and 'Jamaica Farewell' (NCH-732).  With that in mind a self-financed effort later in the decade doesn't seem unlikely.  For what it's worth, the label does have a 'Seventies' look to it, rather than an 'Eighties' one, and I'd be surprised to find that it wasn't from this decade. There was also a single on Chapter One, 'King Without A Throne' b/w 'Warm And Tender Love' (CH-400; 1973), but it seems to have been only issued in Germany.  The band was from High Wycombe; it started out as the Crusaders Steel Band in 1964 and adopted its extended name when rhythm and bass guitars were added to the line-up of pans, in the summer of 1971.
