Originally released by Trojan Records in 1970, the two various-arIst long players, 'Loch Ness Monster' and 'Funky Chicken' were instant best sellers for the company, selling parIcularly strongly among the country's reggae-loving 'skinheads'. SporIng what was undoubtedly the most garishly designed sleeve from the golden age of reggae, 'Loch Ness Monster' focused on the most weird, sexual and peculiar recordings from the period, resulIng in an unseQling yet extremely compelling 30+ minutes of music. As it's name suggests, 'Funky Chicken' brought together a dozen of the funkiest reggae tracks to have seen issue over the preceding months, with the selecIon featuring tracks performed by some of the most accomplished acts on the Jamaican and UK scene. Both albums, currently unavailable on any format, are now represented here, with the original track-lisIngs boosted by a further 16 bonus tracks, all of which echo their respecIve themes. A must for fans of those into spooky or funky music - and of course anyone into classic boss reggae sounds!
