Arguably the most gifted Jamaican performer of his generation, Ken Boothe is today widely regarded as a living legend, having recorded innumerable ska, rock steady and reggae classics over a period spanning some 60 years. After making his recording debut in 1962, Ken enjoyed a hugely successful career in Jamaica before achieving international stardom in 1974 with his chart-topping interpretation of ‘Everything I Own’ and the top 10 follow-up, ‘Crying Over You’.

Both of these hugely popular tracks feature on this collection, which forms part of Trojan Record’s new ‘Essential Artist’ series, which showcases the best-loved recordings of some of Jamaica’s greatest musical talents.

Available as a 28-track double vinyl LP and a comprehensive 50-track 2CD compilation, both releases demonstrate the exceptional vocal talents of one of the finest and most soulful performers to have made their mark on modern popular music scene since the Sixties.
