Independent label: Rockfield Records was a label of the world-renowned Rockfield Studios, of Montgomery, Gwent, owned by Kingsley and Charles Ward.  Best known for quality of the artists who have recorded there - Queen, Paul Weller, Oasis, etc - Rockfield had its own record label in the mid 1970s.  Its first two singles, both by Dave Edmunds, went Top 10 in 1973; after this encouraging start, things got quieter.  A switch from RCA to United Artists in the second half of 1975 failed to improve matters, and by 1978 Rockfield had gone back to concentrating on what they did best: recording groups for other labels. RCA-era singles had their own ROC-0 numbering series; after the move to UA, Rockfield singles shared a UP-36000 series with those of the host company.  Early UA releases had a small 'ROCKFIELD' logo under the main UA one; fromUP-36188 onwards the UA logo moved and the Rockfield one got bigger.  In the RCA days the label appears to have had a short-lived subsidiary, Maypole.
