Track Listing / Description
Fantastic in-depth in fact definitive examination of legendary London based reggae specialist label Trojan and its many subsidiaries by long-time enthusiast and Trojan compiler, researcher and, well, he probably does it all. Cane-Honeysett has left no stone unturned in telling the story of this much loved and often misunderstood label, originally set up by Island Records to handle their reggae catalogue, distinct from the main Island label, which was being steered in a more rock orientated direction by owner Chris Blackwell. All the main characters involved and who are still extant appear to have been tracked down and their views and stories told, often by themselves: Lee Gopthal, Chips Richards, Dandy, Dave Betteridge, Rob Bell, Steve Barrow... there are also vox pops from the likes of Chris Lane and Noel Hawks, both of whom have had close affiliations with Dub Vendor over the years, Don Letts, Neville Staples and many more, pieces on skinheads and even the staggeringly beautiful Lucienne Camille, the scantily clad cover star of so many Trojan LP's, much to the fevered admiration of many a callow youth. It's a beautiful thing to look through, this book, with countless reproductions of record labels, album sleeves and promotional material... its essential for any reggae fan and a fitting celebration of 50 years in business for the label.
