I posted a comment on the site.
Thankyou for the hello on the 70s thread dude.
By the time i "got the ears" for deeper raggae in 80 Trojan wasn't releasing much except retrospectives - yes, even then! - and the one Lee Perry album I bought was released on Clocktower records so I had no idea he had worked for Trojan. Likewise, the Maytals were recording for Island and I do not remember what label "The Israelites" was released on but I recall it was yellow so probably not Trojan.
Infact the only record I've ever owned on Trojan was the 1974 no 1 single [UK] "Everything I own" by Ken Boothe [although that's still got to be one of the purest sounding raggae strums/riffs [what do they call it when they hit that note?] that I've heard.
