Notes

* tracks new to CD

Many tracks unavailable on any format since the early Seventies 33 tracks new to CD

Includes numerous significant Jamaican hits of the early 1970s

By the early ‘70s, Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle Records had long since been firmly established as one of Jamaica’s music industry leaders, having previously released some of the biggest selling ska, rock steady and reggae 45s in the island’s history.

The trend continued as the decade progressed, with the Duke’s famed studio in Bond Street continuing to produce numerous best-sellers between 1971 and 1973.

And yet, despite the consistently high quality of his output throughout this time, many of the producer’s recordings have continued to remain criminally overlooked over the past half century. Now, at long last, they receive the long overdue attention they unquestionably merit.

Alongside hits by such established artists as The Melodians, The Tennors, Justin Hinds & The Dominoes, Errol Dunkley and Pat Kelly , are numerous long-lost gems by the likes of The Willows, The Saints, Eddie Ford and veteran performer Lascelles Perkins.

Showcasing romantic reggae, early roots and proto dub, this collection aptly demonstrates why Treasure Isle continued to be held in such high regard during this fascinating transitional period in the history of reggae music.

And with 33 recordings making their CD debut and many others officially unavailable for decades, this is a must for both Duke Reid collectors and devotees of early, top quality reggae sounds.
