Independent label: Southern Sound Records appears to have been an enthusiast's label, run by somebody who liked the tracks enough to license them and make them available to like-minded people.  It issued at least five singles during the years 1972-74, most of which seem to have been Rockabilly; though the Danny James record shown, 'Your Gravy Train' (BT-100; 1972) might very loosely be described as 'Swamp R & B'.  Several different label designs and two sets of catalogue numbers - BT-100 and SSR-500 - were used.  Pressing of the Danny James record was by C. H. Rumble, of 15, Bedford Row, London W1 - a firm which patented a new process for pressing the labels on to records, one which never really caught on.  The matrix number of the Narvel Felts singles shown suggests that they were the products of custom recording firm John Hassell Recordings.  Distributed By Southern Sound Records.
