• 11 tracks new to CD
• Four seminal dancehall albums
• Features some of the biggest talents of the dancehall era

At the close of the 1970s, a new, strident style of reggae developed that by the close of the year had supplanted the roots sound, continuing to dominate Jamaica’s musical landscape through to the mid-Eighties: dancehall.

Few producers embraced the genre with more skill than Linval Thompson, who between 1982 and 1983 delivered four superb dancehall collections to Trojan Records, with each showcasing a major talent of the era. All but one of this quartet of LPs appear on CD for the first time in the UK, with Tristan Palma’s “Settle Down Girl” making its full digital debut.

The 2CD set is further bolstered by four Linval Thompson-produced bonus tracks, ensuring a musical feast for fans of the original dancehall sound.
