Independent Reggae label: Q Records was run by Count Suckle and was a short-lived subsidiary of Trojan Records. Q survived for at least four issues, all of which seem to date from 1970 and are horribly rare. Catalogue numbers began at Q-2200; Q-2202 appears not to have been issued.

Count Suckle was born Wilbert Augustus Campbell (12 August 1931 and died on 19 May 2014) He was a Jamaica-born sound system operator and club owner who was influential in the development of ska and reggae music, and African-Caribbean culture, in the United Kingdom. 1964 he began managing his own club, the Cue (later Q) club at 5a Praed Street, Paddington. He played a mixture of ska, reggae, soul and funk music, as well as featuring live performances by leading Jamaican and American musicians such as Prince Buster and Edwin Starr. Count Suckle died of a heart attack on 19 May 2014 at his home in Edgware Road, London. Jimmy Lindsay was born in 1950, in Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. At the age of nine Lindsay and his family relocated to the UK. His first venture into music began in 1965 with a soul group named the Healers, followed by a short term with the Nighthawks.and notably as a member of the more successful group Cymande. 1976 he began concentrating on reggae and recorded lead vocals on the sound system hit, ‘What You Gonna Do’. This encouraged Lloyd Coxsone to produce him as a soloist. The first release, ‘Motion’, surfaced through Cactus, followed by ‘Easy’, a cover version of the Commodores hit, on Lloyd’s own Tribesman label. The latter was picked up for release by Island Records, appearing on the revived Black Swan logo. The single’s success led Lindsay to put his energies into his own Music Hive Record label.
