Camp

The most outrageous (and queerest) record label of the 60s: Camp Records.

An amusing characteristic of the records they issued was the “label numbers” they gave them. Almost all of them are tongue-in-cheek gay references, if the letters and numbers are read individually. For example, ICUR1-2 becomes “I see you are one, too” or variations of that, along with 2B8 I believe being “to be ate.” “45CC” for the single “Spanish Bar Fly” is likely referring to “45, Si, Si,” and “OUR 2-2″ could be “our tutu.”
