Black Lion

Black Lion

Profile:
Basically the same label as Black Lion Records, just the logo differs slightly in the wording. Sometimes both versions can be found, one on the cover, the other on the label.
Label Code: LC 02940
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.
