    The Bullet label. Part 1

    BU399A Winston Shand And The Sheiks – Throw Me Corn

    BU399B Winston Shand – Darling Remember
    Quite why the Bullet label started with catalogue number 399 is not entirely clear but it’s just possible this was some kind of reference to “Bullet 399” in the John F Kennedy assasination.

    The Sheiks reference on Throw Me Corn was not not on the Jamaican issue and may have been an invention by Pama, there are harmonies on the track though so maybe that’s the Sheiks?

    Darling Remember is actually by Patricia Edward, though again there are two voices on the track, a male and a female so maybe it’s supposed to be Patricia And Edward? The Jamican issue came out on Carib-Dis-Co and had the same two tracks as on the UK issue.

    BU401A The Ebony Sisters – Let Me Tell You Boy
    BU401B Rhythm Rulers – Mannix
    Let Me Tell You Boy was a big tune for Harry Mudie, he returned to the the rhythm a number of times including the male counteraction Let Me Tell You Boy by Winston And Rupert and a later deejay cut by Nicodemus.
    Mannix presumably took it’s name from the US TV detective Joe Mannix.

    BU424A The Crystalites – A Fistful Of Dollars
    BU424B The Crystalites – Crystal
    This was most likely only issued on a blank. Two more Derrick Harriot productions, A Fistful Of Dollars saw a full UK release by Trojan, on the Explosion label. Crystal sounds like a slightly earlier tune, similar to the great rocksteady sides Harriot was recording with hornsman Bobby Ellis circa 1968.

    BU425A Winston And Rupert – Come By Here
    BU425B Winston And Rupert – Somebody
    These are apparently Harry Mudie productions, they were issued in Jamaica on the Boss Sound label.

      Hi Tim, I have a copy of BU421 on a blank, it does exist.

    • Tim
      There are two pressings of BU 406, the lalel copy is as above, but the blank couples Making Love and Greatest Scorcher, a totally different tune and in fact the fourth cut of the Another Scorcher rhythm

      ‘Boss Walk’ was also issued by Trojan as a Lee Perry production on their ‘Scratch The Upsetter Again’ L.P. in February 1970 but entitled it as ‘The Result.’ To add to the confusion,Pama also released a tune called ‘The Result’ by ‘The Upsetters’ on their ‘Punch’ label(which was actually a horn-led instrumental of ‘A Testimony’ by The Upsetter Pilgrims – namely Lee Perry, Busty Brown & Nora Dean). This ‘The Result’ released by Pama on ‘Punch’ was coupled with an alternate take of ‘Touch Of Fire’ (both released by Trojan on their ‘Return Of Django’ L.P. and later as an Upsetter U.K. single. It is an absolutely commonly known fact that producers at ths time traded rhythm (Lee Perry, Bunny Lee, Rupie Edwards and Derrick Morgan in particularly with each other) during this period and it is not clear who were the originators (as all of them claim to be in order to get the credit) Furthermore, they would sell the same tune (at time alternate but very close takes) to both Trojan and Pama but under different names and titles. It is believed that this is one of the reasons why Pama lost out to Trojan because they didn’t like not having a so called exclusive when discovered that Trojan had already had it and with a bigger distribution machine.

    • The Goose

      The alternate take of “Touch Of Fire” was entitled “Feel The Spirit” when Pama released it on their ‘Punch’ label with ‘The Result’ on the other side. This Pama release of ‘The Result’ by ‘The Upsetters’ is not the same as ‘The Result’ by ‘The Upsettters’ on Trojan’s “Scratch The Upsetter Again” L.P. whic IS another release of “Boss Walk” (in a shortened form).
