Independent label: Pepper Records appears to have had a fairly intimate relationship with United Artists: the UA logo appears on its label, and its singles shared a numerical series with those of UA.  Its directors were Michael Weston, Michael Dufficy and Howard Weston.  Producer Jonathan Hodge seems to have worked on most of Pepper's product, including its two Chart singles: Peter Blake's 'Lipsmackin' Rock 'n' Rollin'' (UP-36295; 1977), and the Top 3 hit 'If I Had Words', by Scott Fitzgerald & Yvonne Keely (UP-36333; 1978); the first had a standard United Artists label with a small 'Pepper Records' logo rather than an actual Pepper label.  Despite these successes, it looks as though the label didn't make it into the '80s.  Before it expired, however, it exchanged its green pepper for a red pepper and underwent a general change of design.  The final three singles had this updated label. Distributed By United Artists Records.
