Trojan gone.....again

got this in my mail this morning, a longtime fave round here at AesDana towers, at least the back catalouge is saved....soon forward BossShots.....

Last year the team behind Trojan Records decided to create Boss Shots as a single umbrella label for the various Jamaican music imprints within the Universal Music fold. Sadly, in May we had to say farewell to Trojan after the Sanctuary Records Group was bought by BMG in line with a EU ruling following Universal's acquisition of EMI Records.
Needless to say, after having the honour of being its custodians for almost six years, we will greatly miss the much loved label and of course hope it continues to bring Reggae fans great music for many years to come. And while we may no longer be responsible for its releases, our ties with the label will continue in the form of top quality Trojan merchandise, the rights of which we have been fortunate enough to retain.
Meanwhile, on the music front, we will be looking to further expand our existing catalogue, which already includes such esteemed labels as Island, Front Line, Top Deck and Beverley's, while the on-going tape archiving project is already bearing fruit, with numerous long lost Ska, Rock Steady and Reggae gems discovered among the thousands of as yet unidentified masters in the vaults.With the next 12 months promising an array of exciting CD and vinyl titles plus the launch of some great new merchandise, Boss Shots will continue to build upon the solid foundations laid last year and remains well on target of being the place to come for all things Reggae.
