Notes

Dawning of a New Era pulls together for the first time two LPs worth of prime records from 1968-69, a period when Skinheads were still largely an underground youth movement and not a violent newspaper headline. Focusing on rare and in demand records rather than the obligatory pop chart placings, many of the tracks on this set have never been issued since their original small pressings nearly thirty-five years ago.
