First ever reissue of 2 iconic Trojan albums. Numerous tracks new to CD. Includes some of the biggest reggae hits from the early 1970s. Originally released by Trojan Records in 1972, the 'Reggae Reggae (Vol. Two)' LP is perhaps best-known by record buyers for it's iconic sleeve, depicting a group of young suedeheads set against the very un-tropical backdrop of Brixton railway arches. But the collection offered considerably more than simply a striking cover, for the music within the grooves of the record that lay within ranks alongside the finest reggae of the period. Comprising a dozen tracks produced by the increasingly influential Alvin 'G. G. ' Ranglin, the album is a mixture of superior vocal, DJ and instrumental tracks, performed by some of the most talented and popular Jamaican artists of the day, notably Dennis Brown, The Ethiopians, Dennis Alcapone and The Maytones. The following year, Trojan issued a second, equally fine, yet similarly obliquely packaged collection of the producer's work, 'Pipeline', and it is these two essential long-players that provide the primary focus of this essential 2CD release. Unavailable on any format since their original release, both LPs are bolstered here by the very best of Ranglin's remaining productions from 1971 - 72, their number including hits and long-lost obscurities from period, many unavailable since the early 1970s. The second in a series of 2CD sets highlighting the output of one of the Jamaican music's most successful, yet under-appreciated producers, it is a must-have buy for all self- respecting connoisseurs of high-quality classic reggae sounds.
