Customer Reviews

Classic Ska!

Get this album now! There's not a single bad track on this compilation of early 60s proto-ska. The line-up is a veritable who's-who of ska's founding fathers and best session musicians, and the music clearly shows the fusion of Jamaican mento and calypso rhythms to American jazz and R&B that gave birth to ska.

Standout tracks include Tommy McCook's Alipanga, Blackberry Brandy by Roland Alphonso, and What Makes Honey from Duke Reid Group. (McCook and Alphonso would go on to anchor The Skatalites and Reid is widely credited with backing the first ska recordings.)

There's no way this stellar platter won't leave you at least tapping your toes and bopping your head, and you'll probably be outright skanking. Buy it today!
