Independent Reggae label: Paradise Records is a subsidiary of Third World, There were at least two different Paradise labels in the 1970s.  This one, the earliest, was owned by Count Shelly and was a Reggae label.  It came in one basic design but in several different colour schemes.  The company seems to have issued eight singles in 1974, using a PR-00 numerical series; there was then a break until 1977, when PD-000 numbers were used.  From 1977 onwards the company seems to have concentrated on 12" singles.  Marketing and distribution were by Third World, and the label lasted until 1982.   The second '70s Paradise label was American-based. There was another Paradise company but it dated from the 1980s; it was based in the Midlands, its singles were numbered in the PAR-1000s, and it appears to have concentrated on Folk music. Distributed By Third World, Jetstar and EMI Records.
