Primarily focusing upon afro-Caribbean themes, notably the Rastafarian faith and the plight of Jamaica’s underprivileged, roots reggae dominated Jamaica’s national landscape throughout the mid-to-late 1970s, making major stars of such talents as Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Johnny Clarke. The latest release in the newly launched ‘This Is Trojan’ series, this collection showcases 40 of the most popular and significant Jamaican hits of the roots era, performed by many of the biggest names in reggae music.
This seminal collection, which includes a 16-page booklet packed with imagery and a fascinating essay on the style, forms an integral part of Trojan’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
