These are the reggae compilations that I found related to the Castle Pulse label (first thirteen). There are also a few artists compilations (John Holt, Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley and Inner Circle) and four Mod compilations that features a few reggae tracks that I decided not to list. The label was also operated under CASTLE COMMUNICATIONS, CASTLE MUSIC, CASTLE PIE and SEQUEL RECORDS and maybe even more names. The material issued prior to 2001 seems to have a tied with LAGOON • ESOLDUN, so maybe it’s only after Sanctuary acquired Trojan that the compilations started to include ‘exclusive’ songs issued on CD. If I knew there was that many, I would have never started that search. Now that it’s done, might as well share it Wink

+1.

All I can add is:

The "Rocksteady Party", "Black Magic Reggae", "60's Hits Reggae Style" & "Doo-Wop Jamaican Style", are the best of the bunch.

"Raunchy Reggae" is filled with goodies, but I already have everything, on it. "Reggae Action" is another goodie.

The problem, I came across, with most, was there'd be one or two gems, I didn't have, but didn't want to splash out, for 20 other tunes, I already owned. Sometimes, many, many times, over. Rolling Eyes

Just saw this answer. Thanks, I keep that in note.

Some (Most?) tracks definitely in Sploom's "Oof!" territory.

Where's Cal Tjader on 7 LITTLE GIRLS...?

...or Jack Teagarden on REGGAEMOTION?

...or Thelonius Monk on CHOPSTICKS? (sounds like the Deltones version if memory serves - on Black Swan)

...Art Pepper?

Better off with Trojan's "Reggae For Kids" box set...

Thanks for the warning, MGR Mr. Green

I'd not seen this one, 'til today. Definitely, in "Oof" territory. A few more clunkers, and you'd be able to add a "w" to it, for "Woof"! Wink
