VA - Celebration - Twenty Five Years Of Trojan Records

For 50 years, Trojan Records has taken Jamaican music to the world.

"We mustn´t underplay the part that Trojan played. The kids that have grown up listening to this catalogue included a lot of the punks, the Jose Strummers, the Paul Simonons... Before the Punky Reggae Party, it was Trojan. " - Don Letts.

This double-disc set from Trojan includes classic ska, rocksteady and reggae tracks from Desmond Dekker & the Aces, Jimmy Cliff, Lee Perry & the Upsetters, the Melodians, Toots & the Maytals, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Ken Boothe, John Holt and many others. Though there are quite a few Jamaican classics missing from this history of the music, all the tracks included are quite solid.
