Perhaps not one for rarities, but if you want an introduction to the label, we think you might appreciate the new This Is Trojan six-album vinyl box set.

Yes, six albums and 60 tracks, with the vinyl pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl and housed in cardboard packaging, as well as each having its own sleeve.

The set is described, quite aptly, as ‘the ultimate introduction’ to Trojan Records, featuring 60 ska, rock steady and reggae classics from the label’s golden age. As well as that eye-catching packaging, there’s also an essay on the label from legendary DJ and long time Trojan Records fan, Don Letts.

All the tracks are listed below and if you want one, you can pre-order now ahead of the 28th July release date. It retails for £45.59.
