Black Crow Records was originally an off-shoot of Rubber Records founded by Producer and Label Manager Geoff Heslop. The label was owned by MWM Records in Newcastle upon Tyne, who handled all the production, marketing, sales and promotion. The first album came out in 1981 and featured folk trio The Champion String Band. This was followed by albums by a mixture of artists, some of whom were already well-established, including Michael Chapman, Alan Hull, Bert Jansch, Rab Noakes, Allan Taylor, Bob Fox and Stu Luckley; coupled with newer names, among them Kathryn Tickell, Simon Thoumire and Ian Carr, Chris Newman and Maire Ni Chathasaigh, Chuck Fleming and Gerry Kaley. The label was taken over by CM Records around 1986 and continued until 1993, when releases ceased.
