An unexpected best-seller for the Trojan Records following its release in 1972, “Reggae Strings” demonstrated the-then widespread appeal of ‘commercial reggae’, primarily among more mature record buyers whose musical tastes veered towards the relaxing and romantic.

Featuring orchestrated instrumental versions of major hits alongside equally appealing cuts of lesser known tracks from the Trojan catalogue, the prolonged popularity of the set prompted a second volume two years later, which sold almost as strongly, despite the prevailing sound of roots reggae.
