Independent Reggae label: Daddy Kool Records was owned by Keith Stone and run from his record shop in Hanway Street, London W1. Daddy Kool was also a small dusty basement shop, boarding Soho area, far from today's standards, that offered a large display (and knowledge) of jamaican underground (and under rated) music. A long time before reggae went international. A long time before Greensleeves Records shop and Dub Vendor early days. This shop began with the golden ska and rocksteady era. Now, it should be regarded as a real pioneer that took a large part in the history of JA music distribution. Along side with Trojan Records and R&B Records. Daddy Kool issued at least five singles, in the period 1976 to 77, some of which had blue injection-moulded labels in the Phonogram style. Catalogue numbers were in a DK-000 / DK-0 series. Distribution was by Dover Records. Daddy Kool Former address: 44 Hanway Street, London W1. and 94 Dean Street, London W1. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
