RECORDS

Independent label: Play Records was a prominent Irish label, founded by Noel Carty of the Noel Carty Promotions agency who managed Brendan Shine. It was based in Dublin..  Play issued its first records in its homeland in 1971 and appears to have lasted into the 1990s. Several singles were released in Britain as imports, by Shannon, but at least one, Brendan Shine's 'Far Too Young', seems to have been pressed and released in Britain as well as in Ireland - Irish copies have the usual yellow labels found on Play records of that period and are marked as having been manufactured in the Republic of Ireland.  Its catalogue number, PLAY-27, was the same as the Irish issue, and it came out in 1972.  Pressing was by Pye.  Play made a more concentrated attempt on the British market in the early 1980s, when its records began to be manufactured here and distributed through Spartan. The original Play logo was designed by Peter Yeates of Love Street in 1971. The label folded sometime in the 1990s. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
