He mostly licensed stuff from Jamaican producers like Bunny lee and Lee Perry (he also worked on hiphop/rap releases) After that the store was eventually sold and his label sold to some Canadian guy (Abraham) who added all kinds of bogus releases to the existing catalog in the following years/ during the 90s
