The definitive history as the iconic label turns 50.
Foreword by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records. Launched in London in the summer of 1968, Trojan Records was instrumental in introducing the sound of reggae to the world at large.
By the mid-Seventies, the label had enjoyed over 30 significant mainstream chart hits by such illustrious performers as Desmond Dekker, the Maytals, Bob & Marcia, John Holt, Ken Boothe, Dave & Ansel Collins, the Pioneers – and many, many more.
Alongside these major successes, Trojan showcased the work of literally hundreds of Jamaican music-makers, from artists whose careers remain shrouded in mystery to future international recording stars.
