Treasure Isle Ska Rarities – The 7" Vinyl Box Set

Comprising 20 rare and previously unreleased ska tracks, direct from the vaults of Duke Reid’s legendary Treasure Isle catalogue, this sumptuous box set includes ten 7” singles and presented in a vintage style sleeve.

Although all but one of the recordings on the set have never seen issue until now, the quality of the music remains of the highest order, and features many of Jamaica’s finest talents from the era, all backed by Kingston’s finest session players.

Housed in a handsomely designed box and also including a stylishly designed inlay featuring a fascinating essay from noted vintage Jamaican music expert Brian Keyo.
