Boss Reggae Sounds - Laurel Aitken

Boss Reggae Sounds
Although best known for his vocal prowess, Laurel Aitken was also the most popular British-based West Indian music producer throughout the Ska and early Reggae eras. From 1969 to 1971, the quality of his work for the country’s leading Reggae companies, Trojan and Pama, was second to none and unsurprisingly sold strongly throughout both the Caribbean ex-pat community and the UK’s not inconsiderable Skinhead population.The very best of these highly collectable recordings form the basis of this, the finest compilation of Boss Reggae sounds in years, with memorable contributions from some of the hottest acts on the country’s Jamaican music scene, including Pama Dice, Winston Groovy and Tiger, whose Guilty was covered by UB40 for their inaugural Labour Of Love album.

Scandal In A Brixton Market
Released 18/05/09. A must-have collection for all Reggae fans, ‘Scandal In Brixton Market' quickly sold out at stores the length and breadth of the country, and over the years that have followed it has become increasingly scare, with the few copies to have surfaced fetching in excess of £200 on the collector's market. It is therefore with great pleasure that some 40 years after its original release, Pressure Drop are able to present the album in its entirety, its dozen tracks augmented by an additional 13 from Laurel's sojourn at Pama and local rivals, Bamboo. First time re-release of a hugely collectable album. Features many Skinhead favourites from the classic 1969/70 era. Most recordings new to CD. Includes extensive liner notes and imagery from the period. Our Price: £9.95
