Blue Elephant

Blue Elephant

Profile:
One of the four "Elephant" labels set up by Dureco.

Blue Elephant was specialized in "black music", mainly reggae and West Indies music.

(Pink Elephant for releasing western orientated pop and rock music, White Elephant (2) for "white jazz" and Black Elephant for "black jazz".)

In the late seventies Dureco quit with the "Elephant" labels.
Around 1980 all those releases were released on GIP.
