London's 'Reggae Series' Records had their own special colouring. In 1970 Decca licensed several Reggae singles from the American company Steady Records, of New York; the first, Eddie Lovette's 'Boomerang' (HLU-10298) came out in January on the standard black London label, but the next three were issued together on the 20th of February and were given a new 'Reggae Series' label.  In the event the series proved short-lived: there were only three more singles released, the last of which appeared in August of that same year.  Demo copies of the first three records in the series had the standard yellow London promo labels of the time but with the text 'Reggae Series' added to them; the last three had issued labels overprinted with a red 'A' and the appropriate text.
