No, this LP most certainly does not belong on Charisma, but this Dutch issue has a Mad Hatter label! The cover carries a Mooncrest logo and indicates the catalog number of CREST 18, but the number listed to the left appears on the label.

Originally a 1974 German compilation on the Fontana label, this 1985 Italian reissue is the only Charisma edition I've ever seen.

Above three titles are all Canadian reissues, and the blue labels date them as being of 80s vintage, though the former two both have the original gatefold sleeves. Perhaps they correspond to the UK budget reissues in the CHC series.

The above six titles are all PRE label releases in the UK, but somehow ended up on Charisma with Mad Hatter labels for these German, Dutch and French editions.

Lovelady's LP appears to have never been released in the UK, but did come out at least in Holland and Norway! His single "One More Reggae For The Road," a flop in the UK, was a giant hit in Norway.
