138 tracks, many new to CD. The Laurel Aitken – Skinhead Train five-CD box set is a substantial affair.
Some rare rocksteady back on the shelves in the form of Roland Alphonso and the Originals Orchestra – ABC Rock Steady.
If you have an interest in the label at all, you probably want to get your hands on a copy of The Story Of Trojan Records coffee table book, which is now heavily discounted.
A new compilation out this week on both CD and vinyl – Freedom Sounds: Studio One In The 1960s CD and vinyl, which is released by Soul Jazz.
Hot on the heels of the book comes the box set. Specifically, the Trojan Records 50th anniversary box set.
Great to see Trojan producing some interesting collections once more, with the latest being Copasetic! The Sound of Mod Ska.
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.
There are two versions of this, so it all depends which colour you prefer for Duke Reid Rock’s Steady on heavyweight vinyl.
