Spirit of '69 : The Boss Reggae Sevens Collection (2017 reissue)
Interest in original ‘boss’ reggae music from the late Sixties and early Seventies has rarely been greater, this deluxe 7” singles box set comprising faithful reproductions of eight of the most sought-after 45s in the style.
Compiled and annotated by skinhead authority Michael De Koningh, the collection is presented in a strikingly designed box, with each of the discs mastered from the best available source and pressed on the highest quality vinyl. All of the records are housed in a card sleeve that replicates those manufactured by Trojan during the original era, while the set also includes a stylish card insert, featuring eye-catching imagery and a fascinating essay on the original boss reggae sound and each of the singles. With original copies of all eight discs in the collection now exchanging hands for three figure sums, ‘Spirit Of 69’ at last provides fans of the boss reggae sound the opportunity to possess some of the finest and rarest 45s of the era without needing to break the bank.
