*******************
It's always a cool thing when you just sort of stumble upon something that delights you. I have loved discovering many of the great treasures that Trojan Records have put out in the form of the various Boxsets spotlighting particular aspects of Reggae (Rocksteady, Ska etc) and so finding a set that I hadn't seen before was a real thrill.

Dawning Of A New Era - The Roots of Skinhead Reggae came out 11 years ago and surprisingly I had never heard of it until recently. Forty-Two slices of early Reggae, mostly drawn from 1968-69 with a few of the tracks having been recorded in London

I was surprised to see this on Amazon going for such a ridiculous price (£78.14 New and £51.48 Used!).

Dawning Of A New Era - The Roots of Skinhead Reggae seems to be a good companion to another Trojan Records release this time from 2003: Dancehall '69: 40 Skinhead Reggae Rarities. Again on Amazon it's a bit of a shocking price - £270.24!

I'm pretty sure that if you hunt around the Internet you'll be able to find both of these albums at a more reasonable price.
