Independent Reggae label: Smash Records was part of the Trojan group. Smash started off mainly as a vehicle for Bunny Lee productions.  During the four years of its existence (1970-73) it put out more than 30 singles, which were numbered in an SMA-2300 catalogue series - a few of the numbers were not used.  Manufacture of Trojan's records was generally by Orlake at during that period, with EMI handling the potential big sellers; it seems likely that Smashes were all Orlake products.  If you have some yourself, look for the plus signs separating the parts of the matrix numbers on the run-off.  In addition the 'narrow smooth outer rim and rough inner surface' appearance of the labels, which can is often found on Orlake singles.  Distribution was by Trojan themselves.
