Independent label: Pye Disco Demand Records was a Mid 70's UK Northern Soul series set up in 1974 by Dave McAleer first under the Pye International label and since 1975 under the Pye Records label. Usually known as 'Pye Disco Demand' on the Northern scene. Dave McAleer was a 60s R&B enthusiast / DJ who was responsible for one of the UKs earliest soul fanzines, Fame Goldwax Survey, before eventually working as an A&R capacity for record companies including Pye. Pye Disco Demand tasted Chart success with singles by acts such as the Javells and Wigan's Chosen Few, but it seems to have expired by 1976.  The label design wasn't anything to write home about, being merely an overprint on the standard Pye and Pye International designs of the time.  Still, Disco Demand had a couple of dedicated numerical sequences (DDS-100 and DDS-2000).  I suspect that the 100 series was for licensed material, while home-made things appeared in the 2000 series, Issues up to and including DDS-108 had silver printing, the rest were printed in black.  The first dozen DDS-100 series issues were on overprinted Pye International labels, the remainer and the DDS-2000 series were on overprinted Pye ones.  The existence of overprinted versions of the 1979-onwards black-and-white Pye International label on some singles would appear to be down to re-pressings.  Demos were overprinted in silver, in the same way as was done to the main Pye labels at that time.
