As you know, Jonny Greenwood’s compilation for Trojan is out this week in the UK and available in North America March 6th. Listen to an mp3 of one of the tracks over at Fine Fine Music.
2007 marks the 40th anniversary of Trojan Records. As a fervent fan of reggae music, Greenwood collaborated with Trojan Records to pull recordings from the extensive legendary catalog. After 6 months of endless listening, he narrowed down his choices to 17 crucial tracks of essential reggae listening. The set features renowned vocalists, musicians and producers including Desmond Dekker, Lee Perry, Gregory Isaacs, Sly & Robbie, King Tubby, Scientist and many others.
