Stuart Gillies Records was a DIY label. It's One of those cases where I've had to use an artist's name in order to give a label some kind of identification.  After winning the 'Opportunity Knocks' TV talent show in 1973 singer Stuart Gillies signed to Philips and enjoyed a Top 20 hit with his first single, 'Amanda' b/w 'Music From Across The Way' (6006-293).  He made several more records - singles and albums - for Philips, and then for EMI, in the '70s, but at the end of the decade he was responsible for a self-financed EP, 'Stuart Gillies At Caesar's Palace, Jersey', featuring the tracks 'Can't Smile Without You', 'Evergreen', and 'Just The Way You Are'.  The catalogue number of the EP was DASG-1; presumably the 'SG' part was taken from his initials, but what the 'DA' stands for is anybody's guess.  A second privately-pressed EP followed in 1980, 'Caesar's Palace - Jersey 1980', but that was on the SRT label (SRTS/80/CUS-702).  Finally 1982 saw a third EP, simply titled 'Stuart'; that again was on SRT (SRTS/82/CUS-1407).  Gillies carved out a successful career for himself, entertaining in cabarets, on cruise ships and in similar venues, and he is still working today (2017) after more than fifty years in showbusiness.
