Independent label: RSO Records = Robert Stigwood Organisation - started life in the late '60s as a management and production company, linked to Polydor; it started releasing records on its own label in 1973.  After a quiet start it came into its own in the Disco era: the soundtracks to Grease and Saturday Night Fever sold massively and spawned several hugely successful singles, including two No.1s for John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John and one for the Bee Gees.  The Bee Gees were RSO's most consistently successful act, as far as the Singles Charts were concerned; Eric Clapton also managed to revive his career during his spell with the label.  RSO was absorbed by PolyGram in 1981; the company's momentum failed, and it disappeared from the scene in 1984.   Initially singles were issued in a 2090-100 series in Britain; in 1978 the Polydor family dropped its seven-digit listings, and RSO's was changed to RSO-000, the initial '0' being dropped after RSO-017.  For most of its life the company used injection-moulded labels, in common with the other members of the family. The occasional paper label can be found; presumably these were pressed for Polydor by other companies.  Labels were generally a fawny brown colour which at times drifted towards concrete, though injection moulded ones can be found in other colours such as orange-brown, purple, silver, gold and red. The label design remained the same for most of the 1970s, but a new one was adopted in July 1979.  Distributed By Polydor Records.
