      Windmill records were a British budget cheapo label, formed out of the ashes of the earler Deacon label (and later they turned into Chevron, where they saw out most of the 1980s).

      They mainly did LPs of cover versions, like the Soulmates LP (great version of 'Simple Game' on that one&#33, and most of their stuff was licenced from independent producers like Coombe Music and Syd Dale's Beatt International.

      I think legendary reggae producer Siggy Jackson may have been in charge of the label - if anyone could supply details of his current whereabouts, that would come in very useful!

          Some of them aren't too bad, actually - 'Tijuana Christmas' by the Luis Gome Mexican Brass (actually Pete Winslow) has some very good moments.

          'The Way We Were' by Colours Green (Brian Dee & Laurie Steele) also has some interesting wah-wah guitar bits.

          Most of their stuff is very very disco though!

            Is BOULEVARD the same label as WINDMILL?
            God bless Fatso.

              No, but they often went to the same independent producers as Windmill, so a lot of their LPs are the same.

              Boulevard are descended from the 1960s cheapo label Saga.
