          This is a list of all known 45 rpm releases on Various Wisconsin Labels, and other out of state labels which recorded Wisconsin artists/groups. Labels with about 20 or more known titles (name in italics) can be found on their own individual label pages.

          Scans of variety I own of every label here can be seen on the following page:

Armada 104 was a re-release of the 1978 original on Blackhole Records . -- Sleeve scans: 104 Side A / Side B -- This 45 came with a picture sleeve, which is not really a sleeve, but a 7" x 14" piece of paper folded in half. In the fold, a plain white standard paper sleeve holds the 45. It came inserted in a 7-1/4" square clear plastic envelope, sealed on three sides and open on one side, just like the ones many dealers insert LP's into, but in 45 size. How it was sold originally by the band, I don't know. The only copy I have has the Armada 104 picture sleeve with the Blackhole BM-1 record.
