Independent label: Rockburgh Records was owned by Sandy Roberton.  It operated between 1978 and 1981, and issued a number of interesting items by artists as varied as singer/songwriter Ian Matthews, Irish Folk-Rockers the Woods Band, and Dutch Prog group Finch.   Despite the undoubted quality of Rockburgh's releases, none of them entered the Charts.  Distribution was initially by Charmdale, with the label ending up with Polydor / Phonodisc for marketing and distribution in the Spring of 1979.  Only singles by Ian Matthews appear to have been actually pressed by Phonodisc from that point, which makes me wonder if he was the sole Rockburgh artist whose records were licensed to Polydor - his singles from March 1979 onwards had green or silver injection moulded labels with the Polydor logo on them.  Paper labels seem to have been the norm; looks to have been pressed by the independent manufacturer Sound News Productions.  To complicate matters further, the singles don't seem to have been issued strictly in catalogue number order. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
