Independent American label from Nashville: SSS International Records was founded in 1967 by Shelby Singleton; it offered a mixture of Southern Soul, Country and Pop, and enjoyed a modicum of success in the States. It only made a fleeting appearance in Britain, releasing at least one single and a handful of budget-priced albums in 1971 to 1973, through Phonogram.  The single had Neil Ray's 'Big Fanny' on one side and 'Child Of Poverty' by Paul Martin on the other; it was numbered 6154-002, which makes one wonder if there was a 6154-001 - I haven't found any trace of it as yet.  Sadly the single was issued during the period when Phonogram used injection-moulded labels.  I've included a scan of one of the (paper-labelled) LPs in order to show how dull the single was by comparison. Distributed By Phonogram Records.
