Independent label: Spider Records vast majority were about football clubs or football personalities, the exception being an EP by the Llandulas Male Voice Choir.  The sleeve of the Wrexham record says that an LP of Wrexham FC songs would soon be available - that was in 1978, so presumably the company made at least one venture into the album market.  As Vic Blackwell was involved in several Spider records it seems like a good guess that the label was his: his 'Red Machine' appears on the 'B' sides of SP-04 and SP-05 as well as in its own right on SP-02.  He was also responsible for several other football songs on different labels in praise of Nottingham Forest, Everton, Middlesbrough and Liverpool (again), either recording them himself - solo or with supporters - or getting the team itself to sing along.  If anybody knows waht SP-07 was, I'd be interested to hear - it might have been the Wrexham LP, perhaps. Distributed By Spider Records.
