Overview

A British reissue label that specializes in ska, rocksteady, and reggae releases by Jamaican producers like Leslie Kong and Duke Reid, Trojan Records has a deep Jamaican catalog from the late '60s and early '70s, and it's a time capsule the imprint dips into for various compilations on a regular basis. This two-disc, 40-track collection combines 20 of the label's biggest U.K. successes (on disc one) with 20 seldom-heard rarities (on disc two). It's fun stuff, from classics like Jimmy Cliff's "Wonderful World Beautiful People," the Maytals' "Monkey Man," and Desmond Dekker's "You Can Get It If You Really Want" to obscure gems like Ansel Collins' "High Voltage (AKA Monkey)," a wonderful piece of demented soul-jazz-reggae, and the Justin Robertson dub-funk mix of the Pioneers' "I Need Your Sweet Inspiration.""
