• First compilation to focus on the final works of Duke Reid’s legendary label
• 35 tracks new to CD
• Includes numerous Jamaican hits by some of reggae music’s finest

By 1973, Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle Records had been a dominating force on the Jamaican music scene for over a decade.

Renowned for the consistently high standard of its productions and musicianship, the label had become a byword for quality, as evidenced by the music collected on this set: the first ever compilation to focus on its output during its final two years as a fully functioning independent operation.

In ’75, Reid’s declining health along with his dislike for roots reggae brought about the sale of his record company and studio to Sonia Pottinger, so effectively bringing the Treasure Isle story to an end.

Featured on this 2CD set are numerous Jamaican hits, performed by some of the island’s finest artists, their number including Pat Kelly, BB Seaton, Tinga and Roman Stewart, as well as popular Bajan singer, Smokey 007, whose irresistible version of the title track breached charts around the globe.

With all but seven of the tracks previously unavailable on CD, ‘Never Ending Songs Of Love’ is an essential purchase for both fans of classic reggae and Treasure Isle completists!
