Independent label: People Records was a subsidiary of Trojan.  People was aimed at the Soul / Funk audience rather than Trojan's usual Reggae buyers, and the majority of its material seems to have been licensed from American companies. Don Downing's, 'Lonely Day, Lonely Nights' (PEO-102; 1973) almost made it into the Top 30, but that proved to be the label's only success, despite the fact that there were several (past or future) hit-makers in the catalogue - Della Reese, Doris Troy, Jimmy James & The Vagabonds and Donna Summer.  People bit the dust when its parent company ran into terminal financial difficulties, in the summer of 1975.  Manufacture was by EMI, as the EMI-style demo indicates.  The sleeve shown above seems to have been shared by a number of B&C / Trojan labels. Distributed By B&C / Trojan Records.
