Towards the end of the '60s, the Release label signed up many Irish acts including Dermot O'Brien, Larry Cunningham and The Fairways.   A plain green/white design used by Release in 1968
For some unknown reason, the year is often omitted on Release record labels.   The "finger & thumb" Release logo continued into the '70s in a silver/black design.
The Rex label was a subsidiary of Decca and concentrated exclusively on Irish acts. Dana's Eurovision winner was on this label.   Rex kept their rectangular logo through three colour schemes.
Black lettering on a yellow background for Rex in 1975   The Ruby label was associated predominantly with country music acts.
The Silver Pennies dropped the silver and moved from Velvet to Rockelly Records.   The Apaches recorded on the Rainbow label.
