Zion Sound was owned by Alfred Paddyfoot (known to friends as Paddy) who was owner of one of England’s most influential emporia of Reggae records and merchandise: Zion Records on Villa Road, Handsworth. ‘Zion’ was a carpenter by trade, honourable by nature, and always paid promptly, next day, which was an exception during hard times, and low budget productions. Zion dealt with obscure, rare, pressings on 7” and 12”, of Jamaican reggae music, and remained based in Handsworth, until his shop was robbed in the 1980s.
