The fairly new music magazine Long Live Vinyl has a section in this months issue which is the 50 best Trojan Records releases, so that has now become my list, not that I expect to find all of them, but it is a decent steer as to where to begin.
Trojan is a British label and in the early days they would be down the local London market stalls listening out for whatever was new from Jamaica, the tracks that people were talking about from the previous weekend, and would press a couple of hundred of them within a week and then distribute them by hand before doing the whole thing again.

Wikipedia says - Hail The Man - Owen Gray - Hail The Man (Vinyl) title characters are a pair of anthropomorphic puppet pigs created by Czechoslovakian immigrants Jan and Vlasta Dalibor. The puppets, who had only very limited movements, looked very alike. Pinky wore red clothes and Perky blue, but Hail The Man - Owen Gray - Hail The Man (Vinyl) distinction was little use on black and white TV, so Perky often wore a hat.
Pinky and Perky would often sing cover versions of popular songs, but also had their own theme song "We Belong Together. They also performed comedy sketches usually with a human foil similar to Basil Brush. Actor John Slater worked with them as a straight man for many years, enduring soakings from water pistols and such pranks.

Similar sound to the Bhundu Boys and others who were making inroads into the UK "world music" scene during the late 80's and early 90's. Khiama Boys started in the same manner as many other African bands, as a cover band. Formed inthe group performed covers of local and international songs, including Bob Marley. Khiama Boys eventually took to writing their own music, a hybrid of Zimbabwean and South African influences that sounds similar to, in my opnion, a mix of Leonard Dembo and the Bhundu Boys.
The group has been active ever since, producing a steady stream of hits and establishing themselves as a froce within the Zimbabwean music scene. The Khiama Boys, however, have been plagued by a revolving door of band members. Royalty discrepancies forced guitarists System Tazvida and Cephas Karushanga out of the group in to form their own band, Hail The Man - Owen Gray - Hail The Man (Vinyl) Express. Tazvida would later join the Sungura Boys, and found the Hail The Man - Owen Gray - Hail The Man (Vinyl) Challengers.
Ephraim Joe would depart for the Sungura Boys and an eventual solo career. The late 90s saw guitarist Alick Macheso leave the group to form his own band, current chart toppers Orchestra Mberikwazvo. Today Khiama Boys are fronted by vocalist Nicholas Zacharia, who led their album, Dzidziso, to sales of over 60 copies.
