Here is the much anticipated Volume 4 of HOT SAUCE dedicated to the Trojan related UK labels between 1965 and 1975. HOT SAUCE Volume 4 features outstanding original Rocksteady, Boss Reggae and early Reggae tracks including rare songs, overlooked gems, hidden treasures and a couple of hits.
The record labels showcased on this volume are Amalgamated, Big Shot, Duke, Explosion, Grape, High Note , JJ Records, Treasure Isle and Trojan. The tracks here have been selected according to their musical interest, their rarity, and how they complement other selections on the release. These tracks are all out- standing - all killer, no filler. Particular attention has been paid to the way the songs are sequenced so that the album builds up nicely and gradually, starting with the Rocksteady songs on the A Side
and the 70s songs on the B Side.
The HOT SAUCE series is a musical journey across Trojan and its labels highlighting early Jamaican Reggae’s many diverse sub-genres and outstanding artists.
Since the early 70s Tighten Up series, no compilations have really explored these labels in depth on vinyl.
