 I've not seen many laminated labels as such, but none of the few C.H. Rumbles that I've seen with credits to that firm on the label have been laminated. If I recall correctly, they invented a new process for attaching labels to records, but whether this involved laminating or not I couldn't say.

 Did any other pressing company use laminated labels?

 It could be a C.H. Rumble, Charlie - the style of the matrix number is very similar to the only Rumble I can lay my hands on at the moment. But Rumbles do seem to have put a reference to their firm at the bottom of labels, such as this one on Third World, which makes me wonder. They may not always have included that reference, of course... If every manufacturer had identified themselves on the label in that way, or even in the run-off, life for the vinyl detective would be a lot simpler!

 Goodness! I am impressed Toad There is indeed a pencil reference to rasta on my copy Charlie but assumed that was just a style rather than the name. I am comparing my Tau 6 with Purdah label Bernard Jenkins wondering if both were from Homophone.

 Is it not a C. H. Rumble Ltd. pressing Toad?

I've just added scans of my copy with the original transparent laminate covering the labels. You can see evidence of the film at the edge of the scans.

 Hello Deepinder - I've just checked my copy and it's not a British Homophone pressing: the style of the matrix numbers is wrong. BHs appear to usually have had quite broad and deep digits, while these are narrow and shallow. I've seen other records around with numbers in this style but haven't as yet been able to find out what firm was responsible for manufacturing them.

 TAU 6 is 'King Rasta' by The Meditators, b/w 'Version' by The Observers. Produced by Winston Holness (Niney) in 1973. It exists with white labels only.

Several of the records on this label were pressed by C. H. Rumble Limited.

 I have a white label of Taurus 6. or Tau 6. I have little idea who the artists are but would like to ask Toad if these are Homophone pressings.

 The artist is Willie Williams. The tune was also released on the Untouchable label (ZO 1001A).

 Undated, but probably from c.1975. The 'A' side is a Reggae version of the Drifters' song; the labels have been laminated - possibly at the pressing plant, as I have another Reggae single (from a different source) where the same thing has been done. In this case the lamination has begun to peel away on both sides, and somebody's magaed to rip a chunk of it off - along with the artist, title and producer details. The artists on the 'A' side sound different to those on the 'B' - younger, for a start off, even a bit Boy-Bandish. Can anybody fill in the missing information?
