MAXI TROJAN
RECORDS

Independent Reggae label: Maxi Trojan Records. On three separate occasions in the '70s Trojan tried to make the most of their back-catalogue of hit records by issuing them in three-track EP form.  A special marque was introduced for EPs; and this, Maxi Trojan, is it.   The 1971-73 version, with its bold colours, makes the 1976 to 1977 one look a little plain; the 1979 to 1980 one also had the less exotic brown label.  The three sets had different numbering series: TRM-9000 for the earlier one, TRM-3000 for the middle, and TMX-4000 for the last, though at least one early Maxi Trojan EP, Greyhound's 'Moon River', was given a standard Trojan TR-7000-series catalogue number, TR-7848.  Some TMXes were reissued in 1983, through PRT.  Trojan was responsible for the pressings, but as the company had no pressing plant of its own it must merely have got that job done elsewhere. Distributed By Trojan Records.
