Established in summer 1967 as a sub-label by Lee Gopthal and Island Records’ founder Chris Blackwell, the Trojan was instrumental in bringing reggae sounds to Europe in the seventies.

During its heyday, Trojan released hundreds of records including music by Desmond Dekker, Toots and the Maytals, Bob & Marcia, and The Ethiopians.

Trojan Records’ 50th anniversary box set includes hits alongside rarities, as well as two recordings from new label Trojan Reloaded, with 4xLPs, 2×7″ singles, 2xCDs, a 50 page book, a Trojan slipmat, and a Trojan 7″ single adapter.
