Charles le Brigand - Duke Reid's Treasures

Charles le Brigand - Duke Reid's Treasures

About the show

Playing tracks by

The Melodians, Joya Landis, Phyllis Dillon, Hopeton Lewis, Lee Perry & The Silvertones and more.

Arthur "Duke" Reid was a record producer, DJ and label owner. The "Duke" was Sir Coxsone's fiercest rival on the quest for supremacy in sound clashes in Jamaica in the late 60's.

"Duke Reid was a true pioneer in Jamaica. A colorful character that wore a bandoleer and carried a pair of pistols... who was a former police man and yet attracted some of the roughest followers to his sound system. By all reports he dealt with artists well and they repaid him by giving him some of the greatest songs ever recorded in Jamaica. An era ended with his death in 1975 and his legacy has not received the proper examination it deserves. The legacy of Treasure Isle seems more important outside of Jamaica today than it does on the island where memory of the label's many hits has receded into the distant past. Maybe in the future this glaring oversight will be corrected so that Duke Reid can again receive the accolades he so richly deserves" - Chris Wilson.
