CD debut for the ultra-rare “Reggay At Its Best” album

Features many of the biggest Jamaican hits from 1969 to 1970

Numerous tracks new to CD

Having established a reputation as one of Jamaica’s leading record producers following the release of countless ska and rock steady classics, Arthur ‘Duke’ Reid effortlessly embraced the new reggae sound that emerged during the tail end of the Sixties.

The developing sound was demonstrated on “Reggay At Its Best”, an album produced in limited numbers by Canadian independent, Lanarc Records around the close of 1969. Since its release this predominantly instrumental long player has become a highly prized collector’s item that has remained unavailable in any format until now.

Soon after the Canadian LP saw issue, London- based reggae giant, Trojan Records released the popular “Greater Jamaica Moonwalk Reggae”, which brought together a further dozen of Reid’s finest works from the period, performed by such luminaries as John Holt, Dave Barker, Justin Hinds and the Ethiopians.

These two essential albums now form the basis of this set, which is further bolstered by an incredible 38 bonus tracks, many of which make their CD debut, making this a must for fans of the legendary Duke and the popular boss reggae sound.
