Reggae Strings - Reggae Strings/Reggae Strings Volume 2: Original Albums Plus Bonus Tracks (CD)

$ 21.99


Release Date: 10/16/20

An unexpected best-seller for the Trojan Records following its release in 1972, 'Reggae Strings' demonstrated the-then widespread appeal of 'commercial reggae', primarily among more mature record buyers whose musical tastes veered towards the relaxing and romantic.

Featuring orchestrated instrumental versions of major hits alongside equally appealing cuts of lesser known tracks from the Trojan catalogue, the prolonged popularity of the set prompted a second volume two years later, which sold almost as strongly, despite the prevailing sound of roots reggae.

Although uncredited, both volumes showcased the talents of leading British-based arrangers Johnny Arthey and Tony King, whose work graced numerous best-selling British recordings from the period, including many tracks now widely regarded as reggae classics.

Now, almost five decades since their original release, these two popular albums finally see reissue with this collection, which as a special bonus, collects the original vocal and instrumental versions on disc two.
