Jet Star Records is a company known for its contribution to the Reggae, Dancehall, and Dub music industry for the last forty years. The company was founded by the Palmer brothers who started their journey in the music industry by opening a record shop called Happy Sounds in north London in 1962. Later, they formed their own label named Pama Records, which recorded and distributed Joyce Bond's 'Do The Teasy' in 1967. The label faced competition from Island's offshoot label, Trojan, but their unique ability to distribute music from different labels focusing on specific genres within reggae kept them ahead of the competition.
After Harry Palmer stepped down from the label in 1974 to pursue a life of religion and agriculture, Carl and Jeff continued the legacy of Pama Records. Harry returned to the UK and formed Jet Star Phonographics with just £800 and some worthy connections. Jet Star Phonographics later became Jet Star Records and became one of the largest distributors of Reggae music worldwide.
