"Treasure Isle Studio's, 33 Bond Street, was one of the main contenders to the Studio 1 crown.So many hits came from its wooded loft premises that it seemed every track was destined to become a hit, propelled by the Trojan himself, Mr Duke Reid. Duke Reid was a formidable character in the music business. Like Coxsone Dodd at Studio 1 he would travel to America to acquire the latest cuts. But this was proving more difficult due to America's tastes moving on to Rock & Roll, which was not so popular in Jamaica. The obvious step was to record their own tunes to supply the demand. For this collection we have put together a set of rare dubs recorded at the legendary studio. Such classics as 'Queen Majesty', Alton Ellis's 'I'm Just a Guy', The Ethiopians 'Everything Crash'. All great tunes and classic rhythms, the atmosphere and the guidance of the seasoned engineers Byron Smith and Syd Bucknor alongside the top musicians, set the tone for these classic lost till now recordings. Arthur 'Duke' Reid died in 1974 but his legacy lives on through the music. His Treasure Isle Studio's, inspiring all that used it. Musicians include: Carlton 'Santa' Davis, Sly Dunbar, Aston Barrett, Robbie Shakespeare, Earl 'Chinna' Smith, Tony Chin, Ansel Collins, Winston Wright, Bobby Ellis, Tommy McCook. Produced by Bunny Lee."
