Independent American label from New York: Salsoul Records name was a combination of Salsa and Soul - was founded in 1974 by three brothers, Joe, Ken and Stanley Cayre.  Hugely successful in the States, it can claim the honour of releasing the first commercially-available 12" single, Double Exposure's, 'Ten Percent'; it was also renowned for the work of remixer Tom Moulton.  In the '80s the Cayre brothers moved on to different things, with the result that Salsoul effectively expired, in 1984.  The label made less of an impression in these islands than it did at home: only three of its singles managed to squeeze into the British Top 75 during the '70s, and none of those got into the Top 40.  Over here Salsoul made its debut as an actual label in November 1976 via a licensing deal with RCA, who were responsible for manufacture and distribution; a few singles had appeared on Epic previous to this.  Catalogue numbers were in an SZ-2000 series, but only selected numbers were used; sometimes, but not always, they were the same as those of the American singles.  A move to EMI, and a change of numbering to SSOL-100, followed in late 1977, marketing being undertaken by EMI's Licensed Record Division for a time.  The basic label design stayed the same, though the colours appear to have got warmer and there were changes in the position of various credits.  As can be seen from the scans of the demo labels, the style of the demos changed from typically RCA to typically EMI.
