Independent label: Unigram Records issued singles by people and bands who had sold lots of records in the past: Emile Ford and Stavely Makepeace.  Stavely, who recorded a single for Unigram, were from Coventry; Rob Woodward, one of the leading lights of that band, made a solo single for the label; and Trevor East, who released a single on Unigram's subsidiary, Comet Records, used to be on Midlands television - it all suggests a South Midlands origin.  Unigram and Comet singles shared a U-6300 numerical series, and there was at least one Unigram single numbered in the 6-400s (3).  The Rob Woodward record 'Bogey' (U-3402; 1980) is out of step with both of those series.  The label's period of operation seems to have been from c.1977-c.80.  As can be seen, the label came in one basic design but several dfferent colours; thanks to Rob Bowes for the scan of the yellow label.  Pressing in the '70s appears to have generally been by Orlake.  The discography below includes both Unigram and Comet singles.
