The Trojan Albums Collection, 1971 to 1973 2CD Album

Deluxe CD £6.99

Release Date: 29/09/2017

Discs: 2

Originally released by Trojan Records between 1971 and 1973, the four LPs that comprise this essential collection highlight a fascinating and integral period in the development of Jamaica's most celebrated record producers, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

Featuring the producer’s crack session crew, the Upsetters along with some of Jamaica’s finest vocal and DJ talent, the 53 tracks on this set demonstrate a legend in the making, as Perry embarks upon his crusade to extend reggae’s preconceived limits.

A must for all fans of the enigmatic producer and vintage reggae sounds, the 2CD set, which sees release during Perry’s UK tour, also includes a 16 page booklet, comprising a compelling essay on the man and his music, along with numerous fascinating images of the period.
