Belfast based label, launched by a local chain shop Smith's (owned by Gordon Smith, 5 branches at it's peak, later went into liquidation). Of most interest are the beat singles issued in 1967 by Teddie & The Tigers, The Carpet Baggers, The Greenbeats and The Wheels of Time, but in fact the label issued many more records including folk and religious (The Revellers) acts. The LP catalogue listing below is far from complete.

Addresses in 1970:
Spin Record Company
Dunville Buildings
Adelaide Street
Belfast.
     and:
Symphola House
56 Harcourt Street
Dublin.
