Gull Records was an independent label started in 1974 and most famously launched the career of Judas Priest, who, lacking financial promotional support from the label, ended their contract after their second LP “Sad Wings Of Destiny” was released in 1975 and signed instead to CBS.

The label was founded by Derek Everett, Monty Babson (co-founder of Morgan Records and Morgan Sound Studio in 1968/69, whilst the studio would become successful throughout the 70’s, the label lasted about a year due to lack of interest and financial success) and David Howells (a former producer and manager in the 60’s, A&R man at MCA Records, CBS and even heavily involved with sleeve designs he also set up Gull Graphics with John Pasche,).

Gull Records was distributed by Pye Records and Decca Records in the UK. It faded into decline by 1979 before a minor resurrection in 1982 but finally closed by 1984.
