Let The Day Begin...Let The Day Start!: Day 147 - Reggae Chartbusters

I can't recall where and when I first stumbled on these Reggae Chartbusters Compilations on Trojan Records but I have a feeling it was via my eldest sister Kim, well at least for the first one.

Though the original series was only the three albums back in 2009 they released Volumes 4-6 which were all 20 Track CD Compilations and were loaded with classic Trojan Reggae.

I don't even know why these came to mind today but they are worth a listen if you like old school reggae.
