Independent label: Sovereign Records was relatively short-lived member of the EMI family, with a Progressive slant.  Sovereign was owned by Ben Nisbet, and was launched as the record arm of his newly-formed Big Ben Music publishing company.  It had an interesting roster of artists, including Renaissance, Peter Banks, Flash, Juliet Lawson and Public Foot the Roman.  It never achieved the success or the reputation of EMI's own Progressive label, Harvest, and neither its albums nor its singles are met with all that often nowadays.  Sovereign operated from early 1972 to mid 1974.  Its singles were numbered in the SOV-100s, and the label design remained unchanged throughout, apart from a tweak in the perimeter credits: for the very last single the reference to 'The Gramophone Co.' at 9 o'clock was replaced by one to 'EMI Records'.  The same alteration was carried out on most of the other labels in the EMI group, albeit six months or so earlier in most cases - perhaps Sovereign used up existing stock before bringing the new type in.
