The latest chapter in the “Reggae Anthology” series presents the works of Federal Records and the mastermind behind it: Mr. Ken Khouri. Covering the years 1964 – 1982 there are all in all 40 top tunes by reggae legends and international hit-makers such as The Maytals, Bob Andy, Johnny Nash, Ken Boothe, John Holt, Marcia Griffiths, Boris Gardner & Derrick Harriott are well represented.

“The Definitive Collection Of Federal Records” is a fitting tribute to this vitally important Jamaican record label and Ken Khouri, the pioneer in the recording of Mento in the early 1950s, as the founder of the first major studio / pressing plant, and as the boss of the Federal Records label, his contribution was both immense and pivotal.

This release is covering the genesis of ska, rock-steadys big bang moment, reggae’s big chart breakthroughs and everything in-between.

Deluxe package with extensive liner notes by Steve Barrow!
