25 hot shots of reggae.

Sampler

hot-shots-of-reggaeOne of my all-time favorite compilations on Trojan Records was reissued late last year. Hot Shots of Reggae originally came with 12 slices of early stomping reggae produced by the late and great Leslie Kong.

This new release from Cherry Red’s subsidiary Doctor Bird includes a hefty 13 bonus cuts, including the great Gimme Gimme Gal (Banana Water) from The Mellotones.

Hot Shots of Reggae has never been reissued before and showcases some of Leslie Kongs most popular recordings, including hits like Ken Boothe’s Freedom Street, The MelodiansSweet Sensation and The MaytalsMonkey Man. But the real treat on this album is The Gaylads’ glorious There’s a Fire, probably one of their best cuts ever.

The music on this compilation is just as striking as its sleeve.

Hot Shots of Reggae was released on November 17th, 2017, and is available from Doctor Bird on CD and digital download.
