Black Lion Records

Black Lion Records

Profile:
Basically the same label as Black Lion, just the logo differs slightly in the wording. Sometimes both versions can be found, one on the cover, the other on the label.

The label was introduced by Alan Bates in 1968, so please don't confuse earlier P&C marks with release dates. If not sure, the date should stay vacant. Instead to provide incorrect dates, please denote the distributor and other identifiers that could help to find a reasonable date by times.
The UK headquater was in London. For some time the label was distributed by Polydor.
In the U.S.A. the distributor in the early 1970s was Audiofidelity Enterprises, Inc.
In Germany the most common distributor was Intercord - rather difficult to date, too.
Since at least 1987 the German distributor is Deutsche Austrophon GmbH & Co. KG.
