EXCELLENT TRIBUTE TO TROJAN AT 50

EXCELLENT TRIBUTE TO TROJAN AT 50:

Ask people to conjure an image of youth culture in the late 1960s, and most will describe a familiar montage of flower power, The Beatles visiting Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India, Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock and so on. One testimony from the time jumps out from the pages of The Story of Trojan Records: “The whole hippie thing is middle-­class. Working-class people dig reggae.” Cane-Honeysett elaborates on this divide: “They rejected what they regarded as the self-indulgent, pretentious psychedelic sounds and flamboyant styles that dominated the so-called ‘counter-culture’.”
