Independent label: Redball Records seems to have been a custom recording business; that would account for its large number of issues, their relative obscurity, and the variation in the kind of music on them.  It was based in Market Drayton, and was run by Terry Butters.   It released at least thirty-six records, using the same RR-000 numerical series for its singles and LPs alike.  Punk singles such as The Notsensibles', 'I'm In Love With Margaret Thatcher' (RR-021) and NWOBHM efforts like Vardis', '100 m.p.h.' EP rubbed shoulders with LPs by Roy Sainsbury ('Gentle Guitar', RR-017) and the Shropshire County School Of Music Band (Same, RR-009).  Redball appears to have operated mainly around the turn of the decade, 1978 to 1981 - RR-002, the Tremors', 'Modern World', came out in 1978 - though there are Terry Butters records on the label dating from the '80s and onwards. Distributed By Neon and Bullet Records. Redball Records Former Address: Redball Recording Studios  Shropshire Street Market Drayton Shropshire TP9 3DA. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
