In celebration of Trojan’s half Centenary in 2018, a new 2CD genre-themed ‘This Is Trojan’ range sees launch in February, with each of the six collections in the series showcasing a specific form of popular Jamaican music.

 

As one of the two inaugural releases, ‘This Is Ska’ brings together 50 of the finest original Jamaican ska tracks from the early to mid 1960s, featuring work by such major performers as Desmond Dekker, the Maytals, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and the Skatalites.

 

Highlights include the original versions of a ‘007’, ‘I’m In The Mood For Ska’, ‘Taller Than You Are’, ‘Bonanza Ska’ and ‘Carry Go Bring Come’.

 

Featuring a 16-page booklet, the handsomely-designed collection, along with the other releases in the ‘This Is’ range, forms integral part of Trojan’s 50th anniversary year celebrations.
