Independent Reggae label. Run by Buster Pearson.  ATA issued at least seven 7" singles and one 12" in 1977-78; it added another 12" in 1979 and one more in 1981, but that seems to have been the lot.  Catalogue numbers of the 7" records were in an ATA-1000 series.  Marketing of the first release was by K & B Records, by the time of the third the marketing credit had changed to ATA.  Four different label designs were used: ATAs 1001 and 1003 had blue-green labels, 1002 and 1005 had red ones with a shadowed logo, 1010 and 1013 had red ones with white circles and an oval logo, while 1008 had a white one with the oval logo in red. Distributed By K & B Records.
