The label of Nottingham-based management
agency Midland Management & Representation Ltd. Midland
Management was run by Brian Hart and Tony Sherwood, whose clients included
Little & Large, Paper Lace and football manager Brian Clough. The
record shown above, 'Spinning Wheel', by Ronnie Dukes & Ricki Lee (MM-1;
1974), is one of only two that I have ever seen listed as being on
the Midland Management label, the other being a single by the Medium Wave
Band in support of Nottingham Forest, 'Who'll Win The European Cup' b/w 'Down On
The Beach', which had a catalogue number of NF-2 and came out in
1980. Dukes and Lee released at least one other record, a single
called 'Heaven Help Us All' on the Rebecca label (q.v.). Midland
Management & Representation closed down in 1982.
