Independent label: Response Records was a moderately prolific label from the late '70s and early '80s, Response issued something in the region of forty singles, most of which appear to have been in a straightforward Pop vein, sometimes with a hint of Disco.  It used an SR-500 numerical series; SR-540 appeared in 1985.  Response's albums seem to have been an odd mixture: Easy Listening LPs by the Palm Court Trio and by the Epworth Choir rubbed shoulders with Percy Thrower's, 'Guide To Good Gardening'.  Be that as it may, only one of the company's records ever cracked the Charts: Black Gorilla's single 'Gimme Dat Banana' (SR-502) just about crept into the Top 30 in 1977.  Manufacture and distribution were by Pye. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
