YHR (York House Recordings) was a cassette label that existed between 1980-83. Initially created as a way to release cassette albums by MFH, the 'band' Andrew Cox and I formed at the tail end of 1979, it went on to release 31 titles by various European artists. Some, including Cluster, Conrad Schnitzler, Asmus Tietchens and Günter Schickert, were quite well-known at the time.   ​
