This Is Trojan: Boss Reggae 2CD Album

Deluxe CD £6.99

Release Date: 27/04/2018

Discs: 2

As the 1960s drew to a close, a new, exciting sound emerged in Jamaica that would swiftly take the music world by storm: reggae.

During this formative period, the music was marked by its rapid tempo, which by the dawn of the Seventies had been superseded by the more relaxed style that today is more readily associated with the genre.

In recent years, the early, energetic form of reggae has been branded ‘boss’ or ‘skinhead’ reggae – the latter reflecting its association with the UK’s youth sub-culture that championed the style.

This aptly-titled 2CD set in the newly launched ‘This Is Trojan’ 2CD range showcases 50 of the most popular and sought-after tracks in the style, including many tracks making their digital debut, along with 6 mainstream chart hits: ‘Israelites’, ‘Liquidator’, ‘Wet Dream’, ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Moon Hop’ and ‘Skinhead Moonstomp’.
