In 1962, teenage entrepreneur, Phillip ‘Justin’ Yap entered the ruthless world of the Jamaican music business when he launched the Top Deck label & it remained one of Jamaica’s leading labels throughout the Ska era, the run of hits only ended after Yap emigrated to the US in 1966.

This 2CD collection brings together the very best in the label’s vocal recordings, from the earliest singles by Joe G. Henry, through to the hugely collectable works of Barbadian-born singer, Jackie Opel. Today Top Deck is widely considered one the great Ska labels of all time & this set, along with the complimentary ‘Top Deck Presents Ska Instrumentals’ illustrates just why.
