Hot Lead Records


Recommended Posts

Got these two on Hot Lead Records. The Owen Gray label states an address of 10 Victoria Road, Thornhill Lees, Dewsbury, Yorkshire.

I can't find any information on these, can anyone shed any light on them, who was behind this label, value etc.

TIA Julian

Found an article about Ian Smith and his career here. Label presumably an outlet for his musical activities:

He's also quoted in this fascinating article about Huddersfield's reggae club/ sound system scene of the 70s! (amazed to learn it had one!)

I went over to Huddersfield to see Dennis Brown around 1981 at a club that must have been the Venn St location. Fairly big place with large dancefloor and bar and a smaller bar upstairs. Dennis Brown was a no show but I remember it being a good night music wise.
