Bought the 3 cd set earlier this week:



Whilst a lot of the tracks have appeared on the plethora of recent Blue Beat CDs, there are many Jamaican only tracks. 84 R'n'B and early Ska tracks c.1960-62. It's great.

I paid 8.99 in HMV, and it's 7.99 on Amazon.

I wouldn't mind buying a set of this ilk at some point. I don't know though ifI could listen to more than half a dozen or so songs at a time.

(Very) early Motown and such like.

I see Athers is selling his copy over on Pama which I've hopefully nabbed for 8 including post. Mind you, it's not exactly a wallet-busting price new is it!

If I remember correctly, LCH has had some "creative" input to at least one release (maybe more), so there is a Trojan connection, Pete - if a little tenuous Cool

Thanks for the tip, Amazon has been visited... Very Happy

I ordered mine at 10:30 on Wednesday evening and they both (including the Motown one) arrived at 9:15 on Friday morning!

...I'd only chosen the "FREE super saver" delivery option, as I always do.

Got mine through from Athers today. Some familiar tracks, and some clearly in the one-away category. But I doubt I'll be catching it all in one sitting!
