Welcome to the form, moriluk Smile

Yes, the shop hasn't been active since Universal took over the Trojan catalogue from Sanctuary in the latter part of 2007.

The box sets are out of print, although Universal have been releasing a series of 2-CD sets (40 tracks out of 50 from a similarly-named box set) over the last 18 m onths or so.

Original box sets can be found here and there, though I can't comment about ebay prices, since I don't use the place.

thanks for the reply.

on ebay they range in price.

i just bid on the rocksteady box for $13US. Not bad for 3 cd's new. But the Mod box is almost $90US.

Too bad about the box's going out of print. should have been buying these up. But then again alot of my old raggae albums are out of print (club ska 67, intensified vol1 & 2, birth of a legend, [original] return of django, etc.).

Too bad.

I forgot to say that there is hope (or even expectation) that the shop will be re-activated in 2010.

The boxes are out of print but there were plenty on e-bay when I did my monthly 'Trojan' search a week or so ago - and all around a tenner or a bit more.

What's the average price that you see for Trojan Skinhead box on LP ?

I don't look for new vinyl to be honest so wouldn't know. But like Jeffery, I've never seen the Skinhead set on this format.

This was a 3CD box set only, there was no vinyl issue.

The Skinhead Reggae Box Set, while not being the first box set ever, was the first to be released by Sanctuary when they took over the Trojan catalogue.

I wonder if that makes it any more difficult to get hold of (perhaps this one was truly a "limited edition" if Sanctuary were merely testing the box set "waters").
