Track Listing / Description Superb and authoritative four CD box set devoted to presenting the may riches of Arthur "Duke" Reid's beloved Treasure Isle catalogue compiled and annotated by Laurence Cane-Honeysett..  The first three CD's break it up into the predominant styles of the day, much of which will be familiar and well-loved titles to many of us, especially those on Disc Two: The Rock Steady Years, every one a bona fide classic of the era, laying down the blueprints for decades to come. But it is with Disc Four: From The Vaults that this release makes itself essential.  Twenty-nine rare and previously unreleased tracks, including alternative takes and, mind-blowingly, a Pat Kelly rehearsal of his cover of The Temptations I Wish It Would Rain featuring just his voice and a piano accompaniment.  Sublime.  There is also a version of Breaking Up (Is Hard To Do), a song normally associated with Alton Ellis, by the Termites, as well as two records that remain largely obscure but were issued by Trojan a few years ago as 45's; Soul Love by Joey & Group and What Have I Done by The Versatiles; delicious rocksteady of the highest order, as well as the recent 45 There She Goes by Hopeton Lewis, a great funky percussive tune called Chant by Duke Reid's All Stars and much, much more.
