Independent American label: Sussex Records was owned by Clarence Avant and based in Hollywood.  Sussex started life in 1971, and was distributed by Buddah in the States; its records appeared on A & M in Britain initially, with a 'Sussex' logo added.  The Sussex label as such appeared over here in 1974, via B & C, when the company's agreement with A&M came to an end.  It issued nine singles in an SXX-0 numbering series, before folding in mid 1975 when B&C hit terminal financial difficulties.  The American label only survived its British offpring by a matter of months. Pressing of most of the singles was by EMI.  Avant went on to found the much more successful Tabu label. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
