Bob Bell's Trojan Records, Legendary Reggae Label, Re-releases Anthology Trove
50 years ago a small record company in the United Kingdom released an anthology of Jamaican music that became instrumental in introducing ska, rock steady and reggae music to a global audience. Now that triple LP set is being re-released.
That project was the three-LP set of 'The Trojan Story', the first anthology of Jamaican music, which was first released in 1971.
WBGO’s Jon Kalish spoke to Bob Bell, the man who put it together a half century ago.
