During the scorching Jamaican summer of 1966, widespread dissatisfaction over the failure of the island’s government to address social problems ultimately resulted in a sea of violence in and around Kingston.

As the perpetrators of the unrest, regarded by the authorities as ‘rude boys’ or hooligans, battled with the authorities for control of the streets, their activities became the subject of numerous recordings by a variety of local acts, with popularity of the discs on the island lasting well beyond the period of mass civil unrest.

Pressed on 180g vinyl, featured here are a dozen of the best-known ‘rude boy’ tracks, recorded from late ‘66 to early ’67, this essential collection in Trojan’s genre-themed series is pressed on high quality vinyl housed in a handsomely designed sleeve that conveys an authentic yet contemporary feel.

SIDE ONE:
• Don’t Be A Rude Boy – The Rulers
• Soldiers Take Over – The Rio Grandes
• Denham Town – Winston & George
• No Good Rudie – Justin Hinds & The Dominoes
• Rudie Gets Plenty – The Spanishtonians
• Cry Tough – Alton Ellis & The Flames

SIDE TWO:
• Rudy Got Soul – Desmond Dekker & The Aces
• Stop Them – Hazel & The Jolly Boys & The Fugitives
• Rudies All Around – Joe White
• Why Oh Why – The Black Brothers
• (Gun Fever) Blam Blam Fever – The Valentines
• Rudy, A Message to You – Dandy

In the mid-1970s, many UK-based reggae fans found musical fulfillment in the first home-produced style to be successfully exported to Jamaica: Lovers Rock.

This romantic style continued to dominate the UK scene well into the eighties and beyond, with both British and Jamaican acts enjoying considerable success on the reggae and mainstream pop charts.

Pressed on 180g vinyl, featured here are 10 of the best-loved Lovers Rock tracks ever released, performed by some of its greatest exponents, with many of these recordings appearing on vinyl for the first time since their original release.

SIDE ONE:
• You Will Never Find Another Love Like Mine – John Holt
• Lovin’ You – Janet Kay
• I Can’t Give You Anything (But My Love) – The J Sisters
• Feel Like Makin’ Love – Elizabeth Archer & The Equators
• Where Is The Love? – Sonya Spence

SIDE TWO:
• I’m Still In Love With You – Marcia Aitken
• Tell Me A Lie – Candy McKenzie
• Loving Pauper – Ruddy Thomas & Trinity
• Keep It Like It Is – Louisa Mark
• Walk Away – Marie Pierre

Towards the close of 1968, the cool sound of Jamaican rock steady was supplanted by a jumpier, more energetic style that today we know as reggae.

Within a year of its creation, this irresistible dance music went ‘outernational’, primarily through the efforts of Trojan Records, which helped place reggae singles on pop charts the world over.

But by the mid-seventies, the relatively carefree sound of this early style of reggae had been widely replaced by a more serious, inward-looking style that primarily focused religious and cultural themes.

This collection, highlights a dozen major Jamaican hits between 1969 and 1972, a time before the rise of roots and dub, when the music was made simply for having a good time.

As with all releases in Trojan’s exciting new genre-themed series, the LP is pressed on high quality 180gm vinyl and, in true Tighten Up tradition, housed in an eye-catching sleeve.

SIDE ONE:
• Sweet Sensation – The Melodians

The late sixties witnessed the development and rise to musical dominance of reggae, with this new, dynamic style rapidly usurping the more languid sound of rock steady that had reigned in Jamaica since 1966.

Early reggae recordings were noted for their tempo and high energy, but by the early seventies, the rhythm had slowed significantly, with the mellow vibe commonly associated with the sound gradually established.

More recently, however, the early reggae sound that provided the soundtrack for Britain’s original skinheads, has become increasingly popular once again, and today is regarded as a sub-genre of it own.

Comprising a dozen of the most popular ‘boss reggae’ tracks of the late sixties (including the UK hit, ‘Wet Dream’), this essential collection in Trojan’s new genre-themed series is pressed on high quality 180g vinyl housed in a handsomely designed sleeve that conveys an authentic yet contemporary feel.

Tracklisting:

SIDE ONE:

1. No More Heartaches – The Beltones
2. Tighten Up – The Inspirations
3. Wet Dream – Max Romeo
4. Bangarang – Stranger Cole & Lester Sterling
5. Cuss Cuss – Lloyd Robinson

This superb collection on 180g vinyl features 12 of the most significant recordings of the rock steady era, including the UK hits, ‘007’ and ‘Train To Skaville’, as well as the original 1967 version of ‘The Tide Is High’.
