Independent label: Supraphon Records was the foremost Czech record label, and a well-known name in the world of Classical music. Supraphon first appeared in 1932 as the trademark for a range of record-players; Supraphon records came on the scene soon after.  The company seems to have performed a dual function, making music by Czech artists available in the West and enabling Western artists (such as Johnny Cash) to be heard in the East. Supraphon continues to flourish today; it has its own website.   In Britain it has always concentrated on LPs and CDs; the solitary single shown was issued in November 1977, when the music on it was used on a television advert for 'Old Spice'.  Manufacture and distribution were by Rediffusion.
