Champagne Records (5)

Profil:
UK label run by long time servant to the music business Dave McAleer. Dave had a relentless ability to quickly pick up for release on Champagne, tracks that had just been released either on small UK independent labels or the hot imports of the day that were either in demand, or likely to be. Some older, still sought after material, also featured on the label.

The main focus of Champagne was jazz funk, soul, disco, and high energy. As can be seen looking through the label catalogue, all but a few tracks were available on other labels. Those that were the notable exceptions are the T.W. Funk Masters "Love Money" heavily remixed version for the Re-Mixture compilation, and from the Pre-Mixture comp' the tracks by Avonn, Above and Beyond, The Inversions, and Potion.

Another divsion of Champagne existed, this being "E.D.M Champagne" which targeted interesting alternative synth pop/futurist acts. Assumably the initials may have been a reference to it's material, Electronic Dance Music ?

Both labels were distributed by CBS.

A great collectible label. I am surprised it is not mentioned more here.
