Golden World had links with a number of labels, be it in publishing,  production, distribution.

Here are some examples :
Magic tones Together we shall overcome MAH'S
Larry Wright Sweet sweet kisses A-Go-Go
Melvin Davis I must love you Groovesville
Johnnie Mae Matthews Luck walked through * Audrey
Janeen Henry Baby boy Blue Rock
Diane Lewis I thank you kindly Wand

Darrell Banks Our Love Revilot
Doni Burdick I have faith in you Sounds pattern DXM

In the UK,  Polydor and Stateside released tracks by J.J. Barnes, Edwin Starr, the Holidays and the Reflections. 

Contempo and Mojo issued 45's by Tamiko Jones and Al Kent due to demand created by the Northern Soul scene.

There was a Ric-Tic label in Canada (briefly?). Other outlets in Canada were Quality and REO.

In Holland the Artone label issued the big Reflections hit.

All information on this page came from the now defunct "Detroit City Limits" fanzine which was owned by Graham Anthony of Derby, England.
