Treasure Isle Presents Original Reggae



Released: 22nd Jun 2015


More evidence that Duke Reid's seminal label carried as much world-changing jamaican music as the more celebrated trojan and island imprints.

these 40 original reggae classics from the Treasure Isle label Include anthems from Alton Ellis, U Roy The Ethiopians and Tommy McCook, and stone-cold best-record-ever contenders in john holt's 'ali baba', dave barker's 'lockjaw' and the frankly insane 'barb wire' by nora dean, who sings of a boy with "barb wire in his underpants". we residents can relate.
