Independent Reggae label: Torpedo Records was started by Eddie Grant and intended to feature mainly British artists; Grant sold it in 1972, because he was suffering from health problems at the time. Torpedo issued records in two separate periods: first in 1970, then in 1974-75.   It released fifty-seven singles, numbering them in a TOR-0 series; it reached TOR-28 before the break and the started up again at TOR-30.  The same basic label design was used from start to finish, but it came in several different colour schemes.  The 1970s releases were purple-on-lime-green; after the break the label turned sea-green and the printing was silver.  From TOR-37 onwards the purple-and-lime-green colour returned, the lime green turning yellow at times.  For the second half of its existence the label was part of the President family, and demos from that period have a large hollow red 'A' on them, after the President style of that period. Distributed By Enterprise and President Records.
