AllMusic Review by

For reggae fans interested in the work of some of Jamaica's key architects from the rocksteady and reggae eras (sans both Clement Dodd and Duke Reid), Trojan Box Set: Producers Series is definitely a collection to get. Over the course of three discs and 50 tracks, the mix spotlights the work of Winston Niney Holness (Max Romeo's "Rasta Bandwagon"), Lee Perry (the Upsetters' "Dub and Praise"), Clancy Eccles (King Stitt's "Herbsman Shuffle"), Harry J. (Val Bennett's "Tons of Gold"), and Joe Gibbs (Roy Shirley's "Hold Them"). A fine set of vocal, DJ, instrumental, and dub rarities and hits cut during the golden years of reggae music.
