Time for another giveaway. This time I have the pretty good "Trojan Eighties Box Set"...

3 questions (see below) and the usual rules apply...the first 5 guesses are "free", 3 guesses per forum member, if consecutive guesses are made by the same person, I'll ignore those following the first...

Please give your answers in the usual fashion, e.g.

1) 64
2) Chas Hodges
3) Joe Dolce "Shaddup You Face"

Wink

No particular clues yet...

The questions are:
1) As I mentioned in the "Box Set Statistics" thread, some tracks on box sets are repeated on other box sets - how many tracks on the Eighties Box Set are repeated on other box sets? I count "normal" and 12" versions of the same song as the same (I don't need to know which tracks - just how many)

2) According to the liner notes, which producer produced the most tracks out of the 50 on show here - 6 tracks (again, I don't need to know which tracks - just who)

3) What is my current favourite track on disc 2 of this box set?

...remember, 5 "free" guesses Wink

Good luck and thanks in advance for having a go Smile

Ian, my current favourite track on CD 2 is not repeated on any other Box Set - though that's chance rather than anything.

So maybe a clue-ette Wink - though I suspect it doen't narrow things down much.

I'll see what clue(s) I can offer after the final free guess Smile

Right then - the free goes are through now - thanks for those folks.

Here's a summary of the guesses so far:
felix / redlake / nameandaddresssupplied / northern ian / sharon
1) Two / Three / Three / Three / Two
2) Henry Junjo Lawes / Bunny Lee / Henry Junjo Lawes / Henry Junjo Lawes / Henry Junjo Lawes
3) Girl Of My Complexion / Sweetie Come Brush Me / Sweetie Come Brush Me / She Loves Me Now / Sweetie Come Brush Me

No one has got any of them right so far, so a couple of clues are earned:

1) the answer is higher than 3 and less than 10
2) the most prolific producer on here has 6 tunes - Junjo had 5 ...as did Sly & Robbie
3) My current favourite track on CD2 is from 1982 and NOT by one of the long-standing "near-foundation" artists

...hope that helps...Wink

It would be more sensible to do some research on the first two parts of the question rather than to guess, but nonetheless for my first go, I'll guess:

a) 5
b) Prince Jammy
c) Anthony Johnson "I am coming home"

Good guess, Grumpy - but you haven't got all three correct Wink - though at least one is correct Smile
