Independent Reggae label: Rama Records was owned by Dennis Bovell.  Rama issued at least five 7" singles, including the one shown. 'The Dreadlocks Connection' by Y. Ely (CJ-617).  If the catalogue numbering series is anything to go by, Rama seems to have been associated with the Lovers Rock label, which numbered its singles in the CJ-600s; though the earliest Rama single, Dennis Matumbi's 'Blood Ah Go Run' (CJ-6 N; 1976) only shared the prefix.  The label, which released several LPs and at least one 12" single, seems to have been operative in 1976 to 1977. Distributed By Rama Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
