    The iconic British reggae label officially turns fifty this year.

    Founded in July 1968 as a partnership between Jamaican expatriates Lee Gopthal and Chris Blackwell, Trojan swiftly became the most important label releasing Jamaican music in Britain, as well as reggae produced by London-based Caribbean immigrants and arguably did more than any other label to elevate and disseminate reggae music.

    I remember buying the Tighten Up compilations. Reggae singles (and a lot of albums) weren't widely available in 70s Sunderland but the Tighten Up compilations could usually be found (quite often in the bargain bin).
