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, ‘Straighten Up! Boss Reggae From Pama’ is 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 Harry Palmer himself.
