Expected Release: 10th Aug 2018


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 & Marcia, John Holt, Ken Boothe, Dave & Ansel Collins, the Pioneers – and many, many more. 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. With mainstream media heavily focused upon Trojan Records throughout this historic year for the label, the set will receive widespread attention from a range of noted publications and national radio. The collection will also be comprehensively publicised through all of Trojan’s social media platforms, including its website, facebook, twitter, Instagram, spotify and monthly newsletter. ***4 vinyl LPs, showcasing the hits, rarities and rare ‘commercial reggae’ tracks***Two 7” singles, highlighting previously unreleased and brand new recordings***Two 3CD collections, featuring a total of over 130 tracks with 69 make their digital debut***A 100+ page book featuring essays and full scale reproductions of 50 of the most iconic Trojan album sleeves from the past 50 years***High quality Trojan slipmat***Stunning A2 poster***Stylish Trojan patch***Wooden Trojan 7” single adapter***
