Independent label: Rochelle Records appears to have been an outlet for a publishing company called Magenta Music.  It was responsible for at least a couple of singles, 'This Is A Woman' b/w 'Lonely Without You' by Carlton Lees (MM-001; MID-5441 / possibly 5442), and 'The Busty Barmaid' b/w 'The Zider Tree' by Jim Ladd & Scrumpy (MID-5444 / 5445) - if the latter had had a catalogue number it would presumably have been MM-002.  Songwriter Phil Anthony wrote all four titles; he had another published by Magenta Music in 1984, 'Over The Top Over You' (a copy of the sheet music is in the British Library).  I would guess that he was closely associated with both Magenta and Rochelle, The MID-prefixed numbers on both singles would appear to have been used by the recording studio at which they were made.
