Independent label: Revolution Records had fingers in several pies. It had separate labels for Rocksteady / Reggae, Soul and Pop; the Rocksteady division seems to have been the most prolific, issuing at least fouteen singles during the period 1968-70, using catalogue numbers in the REV-000s and then the REVR-000s from 006 onwards.  Labels were yellow, and had 'ROCKSTEADY', 'REGGIE' or 'REGGAE' in the middle of the logo.  Singles in the Revolution Soul series were numbered in the REVS-500s; the label was basically the same as the Rocksteady one except that it was coloured orange and the logo had the word 'SOUL' in it.  Numbering reached at least REVS-005, which was issued in 1970.  The 'Pop' series records had white labels with 'POP' in the logo, and had their own REVP-1000 numbering; there seem to have been just three Pop releases.  The owners were Dave Hadfield and John Harper.  Initially distribution was by Immediate records, latterly by D & H Productions. (Former) address Revolution Records: 488 Old Kent Road, London S.E. 1, England. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
