Launched in the summer of 1968, Trojan Records was instrumental in introducing the sound of reggae to the world at large. By the mid-Seventies, the label had enjoyed over 30 significant mainstream chart hits by such illustrious performers as Desmond Dekker, the Maytals, Bob and Marcia, John Holt, Ken Boothe, Dave and Ansel Collins, the Pioneers – and many, many more. Alongside these major successes, Trojan showcased the work of literally hundreds of Jamaican music makers, from artists whose careers remain shrouded in mystery to future international recording stars. Over the years since its creation, the iconic label has continued to grow and develop, attracting new fans with each new generation. 2018 witnesses Trojan’s half centenary and to celebrate this most momentous of years comes a super deluxe multi-format box set, which reflects the amazing diversity of the label’s output over the past 50 years. Presented on an array of vinyl and CD titles are all the major UK hits, numerous Jamaican best-sellers, hundreds of rarities that see issue for the first time in decades, and two brand new recordings by British dancehall don, Tippa Irie. In addition, the set includes an array of essential items, including a stunning book on Trojan album sleeve artwork and variety of stylish accessories.
