On July 28th 1967, British-based Jamaican music company, Island Records launched a label to showcase the output of one of the most popular and successful producers of the ska and rock steady eras â€“ Arthur â€˜Dukeâ€™ Reid.
Surprisingly the label failed to fulfill its potential and folded after a matter of months. And this may well have been the end of the Trojan story had it not been for the creation of a new Jamaican music company, launched in the summer of â€™68, which then took over the the name of Trojan.Â
