Independent Reggae label: Night Owl Records released at least three singles, in the period 1978-79; numbering was in a NOR-5000 series.  There were also a couple of albums.  Latterly marketing was by Plastic Fantastic and distribution was by Pye; the labels of the first two singles credit Mojo with distribution.  The owners was Dandy Livingstone and Dimples Hinds.  There was a couple more singles on a Night Owl label, 'La Al Akimbo' by Mr. President (NOR-245) and The Marvels' 'In The Middle Of The Night' (NOR-1002), but the label design is different - plain, with a large centre hole - and they have 'Made in Middlesex, London' on them, which  doesn't sound like something you would find on a genuine British release.  The Marvels did however have an album of that name on this Night Owl label (NORLP-1002; 1979). Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
