#109 – The Trojan Appreciation Society Lives On

It’s back! After a break of lord only knows how many years and many a compilation album, the first stop for Reggae-lovers the world over is back. You can read all about the new society here and sign up for their newsletter to get updates and the usual. As well as kicking the Appreciation Society back to life, Trojan have got a new compilation album coming out on Monday. It’s got a mix of old classics and a whole host of unheard reissues/re-releases, as well as some never-before-heard stuff. I’ve been lucky enough to hear the tracks and you won’t be disappointed. The fact that it comes out just after Carnival means if you’ve not quite had your fill of Island music, then you know where to go. More info and a pre-order link: here.

For now, here are a couple of tasters off the album. You’ll undoubtedly know them already, but they are absolute classics. So listen to them again!
