    Shatter (Letraset, 1973) in early use for Reggae For Real and Other Rhythms, released in December 1973 by Peer International Library Limited. This album doesn’t offer “real” reggae, but rather “a strange mixture between reggae and early electronics as well as some funky highlights” [Bob Flapz] that could be licensed for the use in film, TV, and other media. Via Popsike:

    Highly sought-after killer funk / reggae LP from one of the rarest & strongest library labels of them all. Peer International pressed up their records in tiny, tiny quantities, & the good ones like this are hence notoriously difficult-to-get-hold-of collectors’ items. Check the heavyweight organ funk groove of ‘Chicano Chaser’ & the manic, off-beat synth funk of ‘Frantique’ & ‘Moon Baby’.

    The smaller lines are set in all-caps Folio with its alternate straight-legged R.
