VP Records is set to release the Definitive Collection of Federal Records on July 13th. Ken Lloyd Khouri the founder of Federal Records had the vision to see that there could be such a thing as the Jamaican music industry. This collector’s edition compilation is music recorded over the course of two decades at Federal Records.
This compilation features the notable tracks, “My Daily Food” by the Maytals, “In The Garden” by Eric Morris, and ‘Hi-Life” by the Granville Williams Orchestra, who, along with the Byron Lee’s Dragonaires was one of the last of Jamaica’s big bands. This great collection represents a part of Reggae music history that everyone should be made aware of.
