Independent Reggae label: Trans Universal Records was owned by Russell Coke, who had previously been owner of the Magnet Records group - not the well-known Pop / Rock Magnet company, the Reggae one.  Trans Universal issued at least eight singles during the period 1978-81.  Most of them appeared in 12" format but there were a couple of 7" releases, both of them by Carl St.Clair.  Initially 7"s were numbered in the TU-000s, with albums and 12" singles sharing a TUR-000 series, but the 12" singles took over the 'TU' prefix from TU-006 onwards.  The labels appeared both in red and in green. The material on Trans Universal tended to be of a religious nature. Distributed By Trans Universal Records.
