Terra Cotta was a one-off DIY label; it was owned by the Cambridge-based Rock band of that name. Its only release was an EP, the first track of which was ‘To Be Near You’ (TC-001; 1978). The bands (only?) claim to vinyl fame is that their drummer, Chris Woodcock, played on a now collectable album, ‘Revel Weird And Wild’, by legendary Folk-Rockers Spriguns.
