    DELUXE HARDBACK BOMB REGGAE BOOK!!

    Originally formed in 1967 by the Palmer brothers - Harry, Jeff and Carl – Pama Records was a pioneer in bringing Jamaican and UK ska, soul, rocksteady and reggae to the charts.

    Born in the back of room of the brothers’ Harrow based real-estate office, Pama Records released iconic early works from some of Jamaica’s biggest names including Derrick Morgan, Alton Ellis, Max Romeo and many more. ­­­

    Celebrating Pama’s history, the book includes a complete discography of releases from Pama’s renowned and unique labels such as Bullet, Camel, Crab, Escort, Gas, New Beat, Nu Beat, Supreme, Punch, Success and Unity Records.

    The book celebrates the vast number of recordings Pama released between 1967-1975 and shines a light on the artists and producers that made it possible.

    This full colour illustrated hardback coffee table book brings together label discography, album artwork, artist/producer profiles and comprehensive notes while also including a foreword from founder Harry Palmer. A must have for any reggae fan!
