"Rude boy ska was spread by Toots and the Maytals in the 1960s," writes journalist, writer and musician Vivien Goldman in RED, GOLD, GREEN & BLUE's exclusive liner notes, "with vivid songs that united Jamaicans and then got British mods and skinheads onto the dance floor together. Here, his textured tender/tough delivery renders indelible the plaintive 'Man of the World,' written by Peter Green, the original guitar player of Fleetwood Mac - themselves longtime members of the blues' extended global family."

 
RED, GOLD, GREEN & BLUE marks the eagerly anticipated first release from Trojan Jamaica, the new record label co-founded by musician-producers Zak Starkey and Sharna "Sshh" Liguz.
