No one could ever accuse Melodica of inactivity in the 1970s. Here’s another one of its labels, this time dedicated to Orch Bella Bella.
Peter Toll, who supplied details of three of the four records on this label, believes there were only four releases on the label.
To learn more about the band, check out the biography I’ve written here or read Gary Stewart’s Rumba on the River (Verso, 2000).
