HARRY J
RECORDS

Independent Reggae label: Harry J Records was formed by Harry Zephaniah Johnson Producer and founder of Harry J's Recording Studio and Harry J Records. He died at age of 68, April 3, 2013 in Savanna-La-Mar, Jamaica. Harry J was a Reggae label; part of the Trojan group.  Harry J released more than a hundred singles during the period 1969 to 1974, and scored a couple unlikely chart successes with the Harry J All Stars' 'Liquidator' (TR-675; 1969) and 'Young Gifted And Black' by Bob And Marcia (HJ-6605; 1970) early on in its existence.  Until around 1972 it concentrated on productions by Harry J himself; after that time it broadened its scope to include work by other producers.  Certain early issues appear on plain green labels, perhaps as a result of the white ones being in short supply, but the second one shown above was the standard one.  Some later singles were issued with a black and white label; most just had the name of the label in capitals, in the usual style that Trojan used for the simplified versions of its subsidiary labels, but others had the logo.  At first Harry J. singles shared Trojan's numerical series, but they were soon given a specific HJ-6600 one.  Pressing was generally done by Orlake, but the three-pronged-centre singles were made by Phonodisc. Thanks to Robert Lyons for the info.
