Liz Mitchell (lead singer of Boney M) also has 3 singles and an album issued by the company in the late 80s, No one will force you(album) and Get on up and dance (promo 12inch single) Marinero (12'inch single promo)& Single Marinero b/w Times a river. Michel Sardou, by himself, made up 80% of the sales of the label.
