Independent Reggae label.  Wisdom was far more prolific in its native Jamaica than it was in Britain, but it did put put a couple of singles here, both of them in the second half of 1978.  First out of the traps, numerically speaking, was Dandy Livingstone's 'Six And Seven Books' b/w 'Sojourn Feeling' (NOR-501); the next was 'This Ya Stormy Weather' b/w 'Weather Man' by Tony Tuff (NOR-504).  The NOR prefix appears to be the result of a link-up with Livingstone's 'Night Owl Records' - Night Owl got a marketing credit on the label of his record, alongside Plastic Fantastic, a company which for three or four years handled an interesting variety of small labels as well as its own marques.  The Tony Tuff has a lower matrix number than the Dandy Livingstone, WM-17 as against WM-18, which is slightly odd, but there you go.  Those two singles seem to have been Wisdom's only UK releases, though with 1978 being a year in which Reggae companies started to lean in favour of 12" singles there may perhaps be one or two Wisdoms out there in that format.  Distributed By Pye Records.
