Trojan - Original Boss Reggae Classics Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

The late sixties witnessed the development and rise to musical dominance of reggae, with this new, dynamic style rapidly usurping the more languid sound of rock steady that had reigned in Jamaica since 1966. Early reggae recordings were noted for their tempo and high energy, but by the early seventies, the rhythm had slowed significantly, with the mellow vibe commonly associated with the sound gradually established. More recently, however, the early reggae sound that provided the soundtrack for Britain’s original skinheads, has become increasingly popular once again, and today is regarded as a sub-genre of its own. Comprising a dozen of the most popular ‘boss reggae’ tracks of the late sixties (including the UK hit, ‘Wet Dream’ by Max Romeo), this essential collection in Trojan’s new genre-themed series is pressed on high quality 180gm vinyl housed in a handsomely designed sleeve that conveys an authentic yet contemporary feel.
