Independent label: Plastic Fantastic Records was started by John Rush and Paul Rodriguez. Plastic Fantastic label itself were three others: Ultra, for 'black' music; Blue Bag, for Jazz; and Marquee, for contemporary Rock.  Ultra Records proved moderately prolific, and Blue Bag, which appears to have been album-only, managed at least four releases, but Marquee seems not to have got off the ground.  Plastic Fantastic seems to have operated from 1977 to 1979.  In addition to Ultra and Black Bag it had a number of subsidiaries, or at least of labels which it marketed, all of which had catalogue numbers with a PF or PFU prefix: these were Aries, Blackbury, Free Range, Lorelei No. 1, Manic, MHG, Pearl, Sabanoh International, Soul Breakers, Stag, T and P, Umbrella, and Warm Records.  Manufacture and distribution of the Plastic Fantastic family of labels was by Pye initially; later Spartan took over distribution.  The discography below covers all of the company's various labels apart from JA-UK, which only issued 12" singles.
