Independent label: Black Swan began life in 1963 (or possibly late '62) as a Ska label, run by Island. It numbered its records in the WI-400s, and expired in 1965. The label was revived briefly by Trojan in 1970-71, and was re-revived by Island in 1977.   Trojan issues were in a BW-1400 series; the later Island ones shared a WIP-6000 catalogue series with that company's own singles and had their own company sleeve - a black and white version of the standard blue Island one. Distributed By Island Records.
