Acetate issue
Utopia Records was owned by producer Phil Wainman, a stalwart of the Glam years, and was linked to his Utopia studios and music publishing firm.  The studio released a lot of acetate one sides singles. Utopia scored a novelty Top 20 hit with its first real single: Richard Myhill's, "It Takes Two To Tango" - mainly by virtue of making it available in square form (TANGO 1) as well as in the usual round shape (6007-167).  It was the first time that a square record had been issued, and it started something of a craze for shaped singles. Subsequent Utopia singles were round and were less successful.
