In recent years, the early, energetic form of reggae has been branded ‘boss’ or ‘skinhead’ reggae, the latter reflecting its association with the UK’s youth sub-culture that championed the style.

 

This release showcases 50 of the most popular and sought-after tracks in the style, along with 6 mainstream chart hits: ‘Israelites’, ‘Liquidator’, ‘Wet Dream’, ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Moon Hop’ and ‘Skinhead Moonstomp’.

Forms part of the exciting new ‘

This Is Trojan’ 2CD range, which is part of Trojan’s 50th anniversary celebrations
