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.
