• MOST TRACKS UNAVAILABLE FOR DECADES
• INCLUDES THREE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS

With Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle catalogue having been mercilessly plundered over the past few decades, you would be forgiven for thinking that precious little of the legendary producer’s work currently remains unavailable. This sensational collection of long-lost rock steady, proto reggae and soul tracks from 1968 demonstrates otherwise.

The first dozen tracks are lifted directly from a recently discovered Trojan Records tape of a previously unissued compilation album, “Soul Power”, while the remainder of the material is in a similar vein, culminating in a fascinating and hugely entertaining 42 track collection of hits, rarities and previously unissued tracks.

A sensational stand-alone compilation, while also perfectly complementing currently available Treasure Isle collections released by both Doctor Bird and Trojan, “Soul Power ’68” demonstrates that with a bit of digging, precious gems can still be found!
