Independent Reggae label: Caribbean Records was a Reggae label, owned initially by Count Shelly.  The first three Caribbean singles were numbered in a CB-00 series, and came out in 1974. A longer-lasting CBN-300 series followed, after a gap of roughly a couple of years, with the label being revived by Desmond Bryan and Joe Sinclair of Klik Records; these singles were marketed by Klik, and many (all?) of them were distributed by Island / EMI.  CBN-301 came out in 1976; numbering reached CBN-321 by the time the label expired, in 1977.  One of the many Count Shelly label designs, from 1973, had exactly the same picture as is used on Caribbean singles.
