Butterfly

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
This Butterfly label was an oversized 10" disc using Grammavox masters (many also issued on Popular). The label was dark red with a gold butterfly and used a B- catalogue series, possibly starting at B-1 but running up into the B-400s. There was also a C-series and D-series as well, of which only one of each has been reported.

Thanks to Mike Jones for the label image.

If you can add anything to this listing, please email me, also let me know which label design it is on (if known).

Thanks to the following for their help: Frank Andrews, Paul Buck, Bill Dean-Myatt, Norman Field, Robert Girling, Mike Jones, Paul Kilmartin, Justin Macauley, Mark Schuler
