Description

Comprising 20 rare and previously unreleased ska tracks, direct from the vaults of Duke Reid’s legendary Treasure Isle catalogue, this sumptuous box set includes ten 7” singles presented vintage style sleeves.

Although all but one of the recordings on the set have never seen issue until now, the quality of the music remains of the highest order, and features many of Jamaica’s finest talents from the era, all backed by Kingston’s best session players.

Housed in a handsomely designed box and including a stylishly designed inlay featuring a fascinating essay from noted vintage Jamaican music expert, Brian Keyo, the set provides the opportunity for fans to own some of the finest long lost treasures from the ska era without having to take out a mortgage.
