First issued as 1969 came to a close, the initial Reggae Chartbusters volume served as an introduction to the exciting new sound emanating from Jamaica. Featuring significant breakthrough hits by the likes of Desmond Dekker, the Harry J Allstars, Jimmy Cliff and the Upsetters, the collection became an instant best-seller, topping the newly formed UK Reggae charts for months on end.
Now, the original dozen tracks are supplemented by eight equally impressive bonus cuts, including major sides from Max Romeo, Lee Perry and the Maytals.
Never previously made available on CD, each volume faithfully retains the style of their respective period, with booklets jam-packed with relevant ephemera and fascinating commentaries, written by original Trojan employee, Rob Bell, recalling the label's early history and the recordings that established it as the world's greatest reggae label.
