Hot Sauce Volume: Vinyl LP


Release Date: 1 December, 2023

Here is the much anticipated volume 4 of the HOT SAUCE compilation LPs dedicated to the Trojan related UK labels between 1965 and 1975.

HOT SAUCE VOLUME 4 features outstanding original Rocksteady, Boss Reggae and early Reggae (“Reggay”) tracks including rare songs, overlooked gems, hidden treasures and a couple of hits.

The record labels showcased on this fourth volume are Amalgamated, Big Shot, Duke, Explosion, Grape, High Note , JJ Records, Treasure Isle and Trojan. The tracks here have been selected according to their musical interest firstly, their rarity, and their complementarity. These tracks are all outstanding tracks, “killer tracks”, there is no “filler” whatsoever.

The HOT SAUCE series is a musical journey across Trojan and its labels highlighting early Jamaican Reggae’s many diverse musical genres and outstanding artists. Since the early 70s “Tighten Up” series, no compilations have really explored these labels in depth on vinyl.

Since 2019, the Franco-British label Harlem Shuffle Records has been reissuing under license and on vinyl the essential and rare records of Rocksteady, Boss Sounds, and early Dub & early Reggae from the 60s and 70s. Their first 45 rpm reissue of the super rare Nora Dean's "Peace Begins Within" was an instant hit. Twenty singles and there 14-track compilation (the Hot Sauce albums) followed, all extremely well received by the critics and the label's many fans...
