SIR
RECORDS

Independent label: SÓr Records was a Welsh Record label. It managed at least one single. Ann Coates sings 'Aderyn Eira' and three other tracks. The EP was issued in 1976 and had a catalogue number of SR-3005.  The SR-3000 numbers were shared by 7" and 12" records alike.  The Internet has only brought four more SÓr records to light, and they were all albums: the Llanddulas Male Voice Choir's were responsible for an LP of the same name (SR-3002; 1975) and followed it up with 'Volume 2' (SR-3004; 1976?), while the others were 'Gyda'r Delyn' by Triawd Tanat (SR-3007; 1977) and 'On Song' by the Rolls Royce Motors Male Voice Choir (SR-3008; 1978).  The last was made through Westwood Records, of Montgomery.  Several numbers are unaccounted-for at the moment, and here may well be a few more SÓrs out there.  The company was obviously Welsh - 'sÓr' is Welsh for 'county'; I would guess that the pronunciation is the same as the English 'shire' - it was presumably a custom recording affair with links to Westwood, or perhaps a small independent company.  Ann Coates also released two albums on the Westwood label, 'That Star Belongs To Me' (WRS-081; 1975) and 'Please Don't Cut The Roses' (1978). Distributed By Sir Records.
