Another Fantastic Box Set From Trojan Records! Limited To 1,500 Copies!
Over 7 Hours Of Hits & Rarities From The Late '60 & Early '70s!
Featuring Desmond Dekker & The Aces, The Upsetters, The Maytals, Max Romeo & More!
Includes Posters, Postcards, A Medallion & A Fully-Illustrated Book!

The late Sixties and early Seventies witnessed a musical and cultural revolution in Britain, as the exciting new sound of reggae swept the country, largely propelled into the nation's consciousness by enterprising Jamaican ex-pats and a largely working-class fan base, comprising people of all colors.

This radical, yet widely overlooked phenomena, provides the focus of this essential multi-format set, comprising of both vinyl and CD sets alongside a selection of faithfully reproduced vintage Trojan posters, a highly sought after Trojan embossed medallion plus a fully illustrated 90-page book relating the stories behind the key record companies, reggae's first global hit-makers and the ordinary fans, all of whom contributed to one of most unlikely and significant, yet over-looked, success stories in the history of popular British music. Features 160 Hits and rarities from the likes of Desmond Dekker, The Pioneers, The Upsetters, Errol Dunkley, The Maytals, Max Romeo, Tommy McCook, Nora Dean, Nicky Thomas and many, many more.
