Sounds & Pressure: Mod Reggae CD

Note that I independently write and research everything in this article. But it may contain affiliate links.


Trojan seems to be undergoing a reissue series via budget label Spectrum, with a few CD hitting the shelves today, including Sounds & Pressure: Mod Reggae.

That very familiar packaging contains what's described as an 'eclectic' mix of 40 vintage tracks, some of which are making their debut on CD.

You can pick apart the tracklisting over the page. The two-CD set does have price on its side though – £4.99 for 40 tracks.
