The 444 Label ?

Recommended Posts

There aren'y any releases, just an advert saying that the label was starting up and that Sam Nesbit would be the first release - and one acetate or test pressing that Ady used to have.  I think.

I have one of the blank labels at home that DG gave us (sure other people have them too) - red and brown with the 444 design and 20s looking graphics around the top.

 

According to the story DG told us, the reason it didn't happen was that he and David Nathan had more or less agreed funding with an American businessman in New York. They were having a final sit down when DN popped out of the room, the guy turned to Dave and said 'you don't want to be involved with that Yid do you?' at which DG stood up, gave him a mouthful and walked out - end of funding, end of label.

Chris/Marke Jackson - Since There's No Doubt About It, either acetate or test press.

 

Chalky I think that's a Soul City number not 444, there are trade paper ads showing it with a Soul City catalogue number, was meant to be a 3 track EP

I remember an article in Black Music , where Tony Cumming's visited The Mecca , and Levine was playing Chris Jackson from a 444 acetate , the only known copy apparently .The record has the same backing track as Total Eclipse " You took your love that was torn to pieces " [ Right On ] .
