My name is Mark and along with my partner Wally run a small independent record label out here in Los Angeles called Angel City Records. Over the last 20 years, we've been putting on DJ nights and live shows here in LA featuring soul and reggae artists of the 1960s. In the last year, we have been working on establishing the label with the help of artists, writers, producers that we have worked with from that era. We've been busy in the studio writing and recording new material with new artists that we are developing for upcoming releases. We are happy to announce our first 45 on ACR 0001 which will be released at the end of this month. The single features our first artist Xiantoni Ari, daughter of Gwen Owens, doing a cover of her mothers original from the Velgo label song paired with an original on the flip.
below are a couple of youtube clips to the a and b sides of the single and a link to our website. We truly hope you guys like them.
thanks so much for taking the time to read

Sounds good to me, has an really great old skool feel to it (due to the traditional instruments used on the backing). Wish you every success,
Gwen is a great lady & so her family members are no doubt too (is Gwen still working with the Holland Bros BTW ?).

Hi Soul Fans!
We've just finished pressing a very limited 100 copies of the first single on ACR 0001 with the issue to follow soon.
"Just Say You're Wanted and Needed / What's It Gonna Be"
Angel City Records ACR 0001
this solid center silver and black DJ copy will not be repressed and was made strictly for promo. Since there is so few, we're limiting to one per person.
if interested, please visit the website at

Myself and my son Danny Clegg can only praise the two sides on your first release, Xiantoni Ari. On the what's it gonna be track sounds a bit like Amy Winehouse! Nothing wrong with that, but just say you're wanted and needed is the mothers daughter with great vocals.well done Mark and Co, can't wait for more of Regards Rod Clegg.
