Independent label: Shannon Records had only one record released on the Shannon label: a Various Artists EP of Irish Country music (SC-1001; 1977).  In the second half of the '70s a firm called Shannon specialized in importing Irish records; at some point it shared an address with Saga Records at 326 Kensal Road, London W10, though the address given on the cover of this EP is 240/242A Kilburn High Road, NW6.  This EP appears to have been intended as to advertize some of the LPs that could be obtained through the firm - the tracks on it were severely edited, and were taken from albums on Irish labels such as Release and Hawk Records.  I would guess that it was given away rather than sold.  The label design was very similar to that used for a Shannon-distributed label called Country in 1973-74. Distributed By Shannon Records.
