Lab Overview

"After retiring from the Jamaican police force, Arthur "Duke" Reid established his Treasure Isle liquor store and Trojan sound system in Pink Lane, Kingston, and was crowned the undisputed "King of Sound and Blues" in 1956, '57, and '58. The Duke then moved into record production, and, after relocating Treasure Isle to 33 Bond Street, he built a recording studio above the store in 1966. According to the musicians and singers involved, the wooden construction of the Treasure Isle recording studio gave the music a distinctive warmth and richness, and with resident engineer Byron "Baron/Smithy" Smith at the controls, the sound of a Bond Street recording was immediately recognizable." This LP compiles some of the best singles released from the label from all time classic artists like Derrick Morgan, Pat Kelly, Slim Smith, U Roy, Max Romeo & others.
