Trojan Ska-ing West! CD

Another of the Trojan / Spectrum reissues that might be of interest – Trojan Ska-ing West!.

The CD is promising to be a rarity goldmine, again for not a lot of cash. According to the label, this set of early to mid-60s sounds of 40 tracks from the Island and Trojan archives features plenty of undiscovered tracks, 'almost none of which can be found on any other current CD release'.

You can be the judge of that by checking out the full tracklisting over the turn. Like the Mod Reggae CD, this is also available from today for just £4.99.
