Prior to the advent of Rock Steady and Reggae, the irresistible sound of Ska dominated Jamaica’s music landscape.

At the forefront of the island’s vibrant music scene throughout this time was the legendary producer and proprietor of the famed Treasure Isle liquor store, recording studio and label: Duke Reid. Collected within this box are faithful reproductions of eight of the Duke’s most precious musical gems from the original Ska era of the mid-sixties. And with each of these 7” singles making their first official release outside Jamaica, this limited edition collection is one for musical connoisseurs to treasure. Artists featured: SINGLE #1: A. Renegade – The Zodiacs with The Baba Brooks Band, The Sensations with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, The Rio Grandes, The Baba Brooks Band, Alton Ellis & The Flames with The Baba Brooks Band, The Sensations with The Baba Brooks Band, Lester Sterling with The Baba Brooks Band, Justin Hinds & The Dominoes with The Baba Brooks Band, The Techniques with The Baba Brooks Band, Roland Alphonso with The Baba Brooks Band
