MOONLIGHT GROOVER * WINSTON WRIGHT * TROJAN 7701 * UK
The history of the Trojan label has been told many times, how it started out in 1967 as an imprint for Island records to distribute Duke 'The Trojan' Reid's products in Great Britain. After the first few issues this changed and the label became independent of the Treasure Isle/Duke Reid connection, then in 1972 Island and the now independent Trojan company, run by Lee Gopthal, parted company. The numbering system experienced a few changes in it's history and the above, an organ version of Joya Landis's Moonlight Lover, is the second issue in the 7000 series, the first was The Colored Raisins with a Drifters number One Way Love.
