8 faithful reproductions of some of the Duke's most precious musical gems.

Treasure Isle - Pieces Of Eight1962 was a fascinating time for Jamaica; the country gained independence from Great Britain and was now also finding its own musical independence in the sound of Ska after having been predominantly dancing to U.S R&B at the dancehalls. One of the main exponents of forging this new sound was the former policeman turned liquor store, recording studio and the famed Treasure Isle label owner Duke Reid.

Trojan Records in his honour are now releasing a limited edition 7” vinyl boxset featuring 8 faithful reproductions of some of the Duke’s most precious musical gems from Ska’s heyday era of the mid-sixties, with each of these 7” singles making its first official release outside of Jamaica in this format.
