Former bouncer professional wrestler, Alex Hughes became an unlikely hit-maker for Trojan Records in the early 70s, when after adopting the moniker of Judge Dread, he recorded a series of hugely popular risque reggae tracks.

Between 1972 and 1978 his singles breached the UK top 50 on no less than 10 occasions, making him one of the most successful reggae acts of all time.

Featured on this, the 10th release in the ‘Trojan Legends’ series, are all of the above chart entries, along the very best of his other singles and key album tracks.

The 2CD 40-track collection is the most comprehensive ‘best of’ ever issued by Trojan and in keeping with the style established by previous releases in the range, includes an 8-page booklet featuring rare and interesting imagery, along with a comprehensive bio on the singer’s fascinating career.
