Independent Reggae label: Reggae Records was owned by Larry Lawrence and distributed by Ethnic Fight.  This particular 'Reggae' company operated in 1975 to 1976.  Catalogue numbering was in an RE-000 series; it reached RE-022, but quite a few of the numbers seem not to have been used.  A third Reggae label appeared in the early '80s; it used REG-00 catalogue numbers and was distributed by Jetstar. Clifton ‘Larry’ Lawrence passed Born in Jamaica around 1947 In 1973, Larry established retail outlets in North London’s Kensal Green and Kilburn High Road and launched his own Ethnic label, on which he primarily released his own productions as well as those by Lee Perry. A year after launching Ethnic, Larry started a second imprint, Fight, which after cutting distribution ties with Creole and EMI merged with the former to create Ethnic Fight, which continued to operate into the eighties. The new label continued to focus much of its output upon his own productions and Jamaican-produced works by the likes of Lloyd Campbell and Lee Perry. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
