    By the dawn of the Seventies, Leslie Kong’s Beverley’s Records was firmly established as Jamaica’s premier record label, having secured a series of major international hits by some of the island’s finest talents.

    Having secured rights to Kong’s output the previous year, London-based reggae giant, Trojan Records, had wasted little time showcasing the Kingston-based producer’s work on a series of 7” singles and albums.

    Among the LPs to see issue in 1970 were two ‘various artist’ compilations: the recently reissued “Hot Shots Of Reggae” and the equally sought-after “King Size Reggae”.

    Available on CD for the first time ever, the latter features some of the finest Jamaican recordings of the period, with the track-listing bolstered by no less than 19 Leslie Kong-produced bonus tracks, many of which appear on CD for the first time.

    A perfect companion to the “Hot Shots Of Reggae” CD, or simply a superb stand-alone collection in its own right, this long overdue release is an essential purchase for fans seeking the best in classic reggae sounds.
