Lightning Records started as an importer and distributor of Golden Oldies.  It started its own label in 1977,
a deal with Trojan leading to Reggae singles appearing on the Lightning label. 
In 1978, the company began licensing records and issuing them on the Old Gold label.
The singles were regularly re-pressed, and the re-pressings were given whatever style of label was current at that time.  Ten issues (9011 to 9020) were released as picture discs on the Cruisin label. The standard vinyl equivalents had normal Old Gold labels.
Old gold label design is confusing as they re issued much of their catalogue in large batches many times and used the latest label version when they did so. Certain catalogue numbers were released so often that they appear many different label styles.
