BLUE MOUNTAIN
RECORDS

 Blue Mountain seems to have started out as a Pop label and ended up as a Reggae one. A subsidiary of Island Records, it showed a family resemblance to that label in its design, with the name being 'built in' to the appropriate geographical feature in the same way that Island's was. Its plain pale-blue company sleeve parallelled the plain pale-pink one of Island's singles, as well. The few Blue Mountain Reggae singles veered towards the softer end of the spectrum. Around twenty-eight singles were issued, during the period 1971-73; numbering was in a BM-1000 series. Several Blue Mountain acts - McGuinness Flint, Scott English, Greyhound, and the Harry J. All Stars - had scored Chart hits previously, Lorna Bennett's 'Breakfast In Bed' (BM-1013; 1972) would go on to become a Reggae classic, and Bob Marley & The Wailers were to become a household name; but none of their Blue Mountain records charted. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
