G            Gael Linn      Globe
This small label made good use of the circle in its design   Singers such as Roy Donn and Seán Fagan recorded for Gael Linn in the Irish language.
Total lack of design on the Gasworks label   Dana's singles were on the GTO label
          Hawk      Hit      HMV     Honey      Homespun     Hollow     Harmac
"Devil Among The Tailors" by Mushroom is the most sought-after single on the Hawk label.   Hawk used red with white or yellow in its earlier label designs
A new hawk and a new font were introduced in the mid-70s.   More new artwork in the '80s from the Hawk label
When he left The Freshmen, Billy Brown signed with Hit Records.   Ireland's first showband single was on the HMV label. Many more hits were to follow for the Royal Showband.
Brendan Bowyer's second single was on the HMV red label.   The Dixies launched their own label in 1969 and signed acts mainly based in the south of the country.
The graphic designer must have been out sick when this Homespun label was designed.   Oh! They found some colour!
Early Homespun labels had at least a logo   Another rarity - the first release on the Hollow label
Pretty label from Harmac   By its 19th release they realised that mono is cheaper than colour!
