A seven-piece reggae band that formed in London, England in 1976. The members were George Clark (keyboards), Trevor Salmon (bass), Patrick Donegan (rhythm guitar), Norman Ebanks (lead guitar), Errol Francis (drums), Alan King (vocals), and Tony Rookwood (vocals). Castro Brown, their first manager found them work as openers for Morwells, then 15-16-17, a reggae band from Jamaica. He never got them a record deal so Reggae Regular severed their ties with him, and Lloyd T. C. B. Patten, a Jamaican who worked for Prince Tony took over the managerial duties. Patten managed to get them a deal with a small local label called Greensleeves Records where they recorded "Where Is Jah," and "The Black Star Liner." Clark wrote both songs which also enjoyed some success as a 12-inch release on High School Records. They mostly recorded original material, another song of note was "Ghetto Rock," which is available on some compilation albums. Unfortunately, a major deal never materialized and the group splintered.
