More than that of any other nation, the development of Jamaica's music has been shaped by its producers. Over the past 50 years, these entrepreneurial individuals have not only found local talent and issued their music, but also established studios, retail establishments and even pressing plants, so significantly contributing to the advancement of the island's recording industry. Their number have included such luminaries as Duke Reid, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Bunny Lee and Leslie Kong, all of whom developed their own distinctive sound, as evidenced on this collection. 'Trojan Presents The Producers' highlights the work of these and 36 other influential and popular Jamaican music makers and by so doing also illustrates the development of the island's music over the past half-century, from Ska to Dancehall, with an incredible 26 of the recordings making their CD debut.
