This is another great compilation from Trojan, every track is a classic from Big Youth's Screaming Target to the final track I. Roy's Dr. Phibbs.

Essential listening

This is DJ toasting history! 5 Sept. 2001
By "alessandro_g" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is definitely a great collection of DJ tunes. Amazing stuff from incredibly talented DJs in their hey day, shaping new styles, toasting, rapping, laying vocals over killer records. Check out Dr Phibbs by I-Roy (saxophone + flute in background!) and Dennis Alcapone doing "Spanish Amigo" (over the soulful "Old Fashioned Way" by Ken Boothe). These people were innovative to say the least. There's even a song by LLoyd Young (or Jah LLoyd) who would later go on to record the amazing "Colombia Colly"... All the Lee Perry TROJAN stuff I have is killer and now I will have to check out the other TROJAN compilations, (such as DUB, RASTAFARI, John Holt, etc.) - it seems they are all extremely good. Enjoy this. - AG
arguably an acquired taste. 27 May 2015
By Stephen B. Ring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
at this point i have 32 of the trojan box sets....this isn't a favorite. i think toasting, as a style of reggae, is probably an acquired taste. casual listeners may find many of these recordings to be.....nondescript? even as someone who listens to reggae every day, i rarely choose this style over straight-up rocksteady, skinhead reggae, or roots. historically, this improvisational style is important because it foreshadowed dancehall and even american hip-hop. there are many other trojan collections i'd recommend before this one, however. (trojan rocksteady box set, trojan revive box set, trojan 'tighten up' box set, or trojan presents boss reggae)
A Standout Among Box Sets 12 July 2014
By Scott McFarland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've listened to about 10 of these Trojan sets - the older 3-CD ones - and they're all quote nice, but this one is the most revelatory to me. It moves along beautifully and grooves and slinks. It brings home to me what a DJ toasting over a sound system in the early 70's sounded like ... top notch.

Out of all the Trojan sex to me this is the best 10 July 2011
By L. Souza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is by far the best trojan has to offer. The sound is amazing. You get tide is high, and other gems as well

Not satisfactory at all. 13 Mar. 2009
By A. jerardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was deceived by the good reviews it had. It was the worst Trojan CD set I purchased so far. A terrible selection of songs.
