I'm also keen to pull together a list of 'kosher' reggae singles released on the major/mainstream (ie non-reggae specialist) labels.

I did put in Bonnie at the last minute Andy but missed the 'Blue Frankson' one. Now added to my own master list.

I'd forgotten about that one Lee Smile

Mind you, there is a distinction to be made to credits companies might have used to intentionally cover up a clandestine release - the 'Keith' issue may have been a case in point, but I'll add it to the list.
