Founded in 1968, as part of a deal with Island Records, Trojan's mission was to bring Jamaican music to the world. Over the subsequent half a century it has done just that, releasing many of the defining albums of ska, rocksteady, dub and reggae from artists including The Upsetters, Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker, The Maytals, Lee 'Scratch' Perry and Bob Marley and the Wailers. The Story of Trojan Records is the definitive history of the label and a landmark publication for reggae enthusiasts. Written by Trojan's own Laurence Cane-Honeysett, the all-colour publication includes hundreds of photographs, record sleeves, adverts, labels and archive material, most of which either appears in print for the first time or has remained unseen for decades.
