• treasure isle records: the ultimate collection  (boxed 3 CD set, £10.75)

    label: attack

    Considered one of the most established record labels from Jamaica, Treasure Isle dominated the ska & rock steady sound particularly from the mid '60s to early '70s. Many fine artists that feature on this compilation including The Sensations, Alton Ellis, The Paragons, The Techniques, Phillis Dillion, Ken Parker & Freddie McKay, all of whom released a stream of hits for the label and had worldwide success. Duke Reid, the pioneer behind Treasure Isle, sadly died prematurely in 1974 but his legend lives on through these inspirational and magical recordings. TRACKLISTING: DISC 1 1.
