Independent Irish label: Solo Records was Another label launched by the Release Organisation in 1972. It did most of its business in that Northern Ireland, and copies of its records which surface in Britain are usually imports. During the period 1970-72 a selected number of Release issues were pressed and issued in the U.K..  'Sing Irishmen Sing' b/w 'On The One Road' by The Barley Corn was a Top 5 hit in Ireland in 1972, so a British release would seem to make commercial sense.  In addition the typeface used is similar to that used for 1972 singles on the British version of Release, which suggests that this single is related to those.  The Irish version of the single has the proper red-and-white label with its comparatively complex design, and also has 'Made in the Republic of Ireland' on it.  It's possible that these white-labelled copies were just contract pressings, made at a time when Irish presses couldn't cope and intended for export to Ireland, but an actual British issue seems more likely to me.  Manufacture was by Pye, who also pressed the U.K. 'Release' singles.   Presumably the change from 'Irishmen' (which is on the Irish copies) to 'Irishman' was a typo.
