Independent label: Viking Records may have been the label of the Viking Sound Studios (previously Tooting Music Centre). It was responsible for at least two 7" records, one of which was a single by John Otway, 'Lousia On A Horse' b/w 'Beware Of The Flowers', which had a catalogue number of YRS-CF-01; the 'YRS' prefix was used by the Yarmouth Recording Studio. There was also an EP by Secrets, which is pictured, as can be seen, it was numbered AP-IS-101 and it too lacks a date on the label.  Tracks on that record were 'Spanish Eyes', 'Sherry / Rag Doll', 'Sabre Dance', 'Good Vibrations' and 'Jig-a-Jig', which suggests a privately financed effort by a Club / Cabaret band and and at least puts the year of release as after 1971, which was when 'Jig-A-Jig' was a hit for East of Eden. Distributed By Viking Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
