Trojan introduce a genre-themed vinyl album range aimed at satisfying the demands of Jamaican music fans of all persuasions - from hardcore collectors to casual buyers.

Pressed on high quality vinyl and presented in handsomely designed sleeves that convey an authentic yet contemporary feel, each LP focuses on a specific style, ranging from vintage mento to modern dancehall, with the first three in the series highlighting the ever-popular sounds of ska, dub and classic reggae.

The national sound of Jamaica throughout the early Sixties, the driving dance-friendly sounds of ska dominated the island’s music scene until the onset of rock steady late in 1966.

Ska was later revived by a plethora of British based bands such as Madness, The Specials and The Selector and has since continued to remain popular around the globe.

This collection brings together 12 of the biggest ska hits from its golden age, featuring some of the greatest exponents of the style.
