Always liked white & red General American ala Velvet Satins, think it's the swirl on the turntable that does it, same applies to British Spark.

Love Blue Cat, Impact, Mel Brit's Fip ain't bad, like M-S (Eddie Hill) Stateside has something classy about it, especially demos.

My favourite has to be Soul Hawk, got a Jimmy Soul Clark 'winner' on that & would rather look at it than play it.

Cheers

Aid.

another totally awesome one is the cap-city label with the color drawing with the washington monument (I know there were a bunch of cap-city label designs but that one was amazing).

one of my faves mate

another reason the sure shot label was awesome was that it had the two guns on it and don robey was famous for supposedly having two guns on him all the time

spot on..

may not be considered as exotic as some, but there is something bout Pink Decca demos. Other than that Old Town Demos just have that I want factor... Cap City on Pat Johnson is really nice, and I think Johnny Barnes has a slight label design change as well, which is magnetic!!!

USA records, what can you say, sound stage 7 black issues, Red Coach, Kapp Demos, maurci for the pink / white issues, and Musette..

The Tower label as per the design of 'World Column' (Issue or demo) immediately springs to mind for me!

Think it has something to do with looking down from the balcony at Wigan and seeing it spinning round on the deck and totally mesmerising me!

Corny I know but there are certain things that stick in your mind and that's one of those for me :wub:

I've hundreds more which I'm sure will come to mind very soon but that was the first!
