Here's some simple info Mel to make a start.
If you have any Grand Junction 45's (Gaslight the Group that is etc) you will see the name "Uptight Production" thereon. I wonder if George McGregor's name is on your 45? I think he had something to do with that set up. Seventies label.
Burt was Ernest Burt's label. I recall Soul Tornadoeson there. The label was based in the Magic City Building (see SoulfulDetroit tour). I was told in April that Mr Burt was shot dead on the premises early seventies.
Invasion was based across the road from Mike Hank's D Town. I have a photo to upload at a later stage. There was another operation in that building.
I have details at home plus some minor info on all other labels you mention.

Mel, from memory Northen De La seems to share the same address as Dotty's. I'd guess that Johnnie Mae had a brief partnership with Sonny Marshall.
Invasion - wasn't that owned by J J Barnes?
Have you got these 45s? If so, please post some other info, such as songwriters etc.

I don't know of any Lovelite label from Detroit, but there was a very well-known one from Chicago, owned by Clarence Johnson, manager of the female group "The Lovelites". It was part of Master Key Productions, which included the Lock and Master Key labels (among others).
