I can't have been reading in the right places (they're not all new), but a label called Pressure Drop (part of Cherry Red) has put together a whole load of Laurel Aitken CDs which look well worth investigating: http://www.cherryred.co.uk/pressuredrop ... urelaitken .

Another label did put out some choice Aitken stuff before, but this is a much broader selection, from Jamaican R&B through ska to rocksteady, skinhead and beyond. The Anthology is the obvious place to start for an overview of this key figure's work.
