THE GREENSLEEVES RECORDS COLLECTION

Posted: August 24, 2007 by dillion in Uncategorized

Greensleeves Records is known to dancehall and reggae fans around the world as the label that hosts all the good reggae that isn’t by a Marley. Their new retrospective spans all 30 years of the label’s existence, with cuts from nearly all of their best artists. The full track listing is below, so I’m not gonna belabor it, except to note that the physical release date is soon–September 3rd–but the iTunes release is even sooner (8/28). iTunes will bundle a PDF booklet along with each purchase that includes all of the goodies packaged in the physical product — exclusive images and interviews with the label’s founders, along with quotes and stories from artists.
