Independent label: Pegasus Records was a short-lived successor to B&C's contemporary-music label 'Pegasus'. Which ran into trademark difficulties and was forced to mutate. The switch of names took place in February 1972.  Peg took over Pegasus's numbering (PGS-0 for singles, PEG-0 for albums) at PEG-3, and several Pegasus albums being re-pressed or reissued on Peg.  Nazareth's 'Dear John' single (PGS-2) was also reissued on Peg, albeit after a delay of nearly a year; the 'B' side remained the same but was given a different title, for some reason.  In 1973 B&C dropped both Peg and its main B&C label and replaced them with Mooncrest.  As as result of these changes it is possible to find some records - Nazareth's 'Exercises' LP, for example - on Pegasus, Peg and Mooncrest; which is slightly odd.  Pressing was by EMI; as can be seen, the demo copy of PGS-4 has the typical EMI-style overprinting.  B&C had its own distribution network, which may latterly have acted in tandem with that of EMI.  EMI Records had been distributing B&C records since earlier that year. Three Man Army was formed in 1970 by brothers Adrian Gurvitz and Paul Gurvitz. Their initial effort A Third of a Lifetime appeared on Pegasus Records the following year, featuring contributions by drummers Buddy Miles, Mike Kellie and Carmine Appice. Tony Newman would eventually join as the permanent sticksman for the rest of the lifespan of this Britsh power trio. Mahesha would be the first production Newman appeared on, initially released in 1972, then reissued with alternate cover art in 1973 as Three Man Army. 1974 saw the trio's last attempt at achieveing fame and fortune with Three Man Army Two. But like the other productions of this band commercial success eluded them also on this occasion and the band folded around 1975. Nazareth formed in December 1968 in Dunfermline, Scotland, from the remaining members of semi-professional local group The Shadettes (formed in 1961) by vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton (ex Mark V and The Red Hawks), bassist Pete Agnew, and drummer Darrell Sweet. Nazareth had several hits in the United Kingdom in the early 1970s, and established an international audience with their 1975 album Hair of the Dog. Perhaps their best-known hit single was a cover of the ballad "Love Hurts", in 1975. Spirogyra are a British folk/prog band. Martin Cockerham (vocals/guitar) and Mark Francis originally formed Spirogyra as a duo in Bolton, Lancashire in the summer of 1967. In December 1969 Martin Cockerham expanded the band to include Barbara Gaskin (vocals), Steve Borrill (bass guitar), and Julian Cusack (violin). Steeleye Span are an English folk-rock band formed in 1969 by ex-Fairport bassist Ashley Hutchings. Band members Peter Knight, vocals, fiddle, banjo, mandolin. Maddy Prior, vocals.
