✨✧ SkatalitesReturn Of The Big Guns ... CD
Island (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A strong mid 80s record by a reunited Skatalites – the legendary first wave ska group with roots in the early 60s, and somehow managed to sound just as vital as ever here some 20 years later! This is truly wonderful set from the masters, despite the very late recording date. The trademark horn lines punctuated some nice rolling reggae rhythms, but still with some great jaunty ska flair keeping things nice and energetic. 8 tracks in all: "After The Rain", "Passing Through", "Reasoning", "Jogging", "Meet To Come", "Pep-Hep Lift", "Eastern Rock" and "Mission".

Jackie MittooJackie Mittoo – The Keyboard King At Studio One ... CD
Universal Sound/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Killer funky organ – and 100% Dynamite! Jackie Mittoo is one of the all-time great organists – as essential to Jamaica as Booker T was to Memphis, or Jimmy McGriff was to New York. He's legendary these days as the player who completely transformed the Hammond sound with his unique Jamaican instrumental style during his early years with the Skatalites, and on his later solo recordings for Studio One. This set's probably the first time Mittoo's work has been properly packaged and remastered – and the folks at Soul Jazz have done an amazing job of selecting just the right tracks for such a project. The whole thing wails along with a stone rocksteady groove – with plenty of nice drum parts and funky rhythm bits underneath Jackie's soulful organ. If you dug the label's 100% Dynamite series, you'll really dig this one – and the whole thing's very much in the same vein. Tracks include "Drum Song", "Reggae Rock", "Hot Tamale", "Killer Diller", "Black Organ", "Stereo Freeze", "Wall Street", "Darker Shade Of Black", "Juice Box", and "Killer Diller". CD

VariousStudio One Ska ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Another chapter in the Studio One story, as told by the top notch selectors at Soul Jazz, and as with the earlier editions in their Studio One series, this one's another mighty batch of Jamaican rhythm and blues. Like so many other Coxsone Dodd productions, you can hear the foundations of many future generations of Jamaican music running through these titles, 17 jaunty ska numbers laced with jazz inflected solos laid down by Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo and the Skatalites, or harmonized vocals courtesy the Ethiopians, Maytals and others. As you've come to expect, this is an ace package with excellent notes and archival photos, loaded down with classic performances and hard to get nuggets, too! With Jackie Mittoo's "El Bang Bang", Ken Boothe & Stranger Cole "Arte Bella", The Wailers "Put It On", The Skatalites "Addis Ababa" and "Exodus", Joe Higgs "I'm The Song My Enemies Sing", Delroy Wilson "I Want Justice", Tommy McCook "Sampson" and "Freedom Sounds", The Maytals "Marching On", Don Drummond "Don Cosmic", Andy & Joey "You're Wondering Now" and more!

Soul Jazz (UK), Mid/Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We give up! Just when we thought the gravy train had stopped running, the last train to skaville pulls into the station with 16 jaunty numbers fusing ska and rocksteady with a healthy dose of Jamaican soul at the hands of Jackie Mittoo and the Soul Brothers under the guidance of Coxsone Dodd! After the Skatalites busted up in the mid 60s, Dodd set about assembling a new house band, bringing Mittoo and a number of the original members of the Skatalites, including Lloyd Brevett and Roland Alphonso, together with some of the new, younger talent, and the fine folks at Soul Jazz have assembled a mighty, mighty set of their finest moments. But as Coxsone says in the liner notes, let's "Cut the chatter and spin the platter"! Includes "James Bond", "Voodoo Moon", "Chicken & Booze", "Hpney Pot", "Mr Flint", "Dr Ring Ding", "Got My Boogaloo", "Home Made", "Sufferer's Choice" and "Hot & Cold". CD

Treasure Isle/Heartbeat, 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mad ska from the King of Soul & Blues, proprietor of the heavy, heavy Trojan Sound System – after which the famous UK label would name themselves – Duke Reid!

✨✧ VariousThat Ska Beat – Made In Jamaica 1962 to 1966 ... CD
Voice Of Jamaica (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer ska from the earliest days of the genre – not the remakes or revivals that have happened heavily since the late 70s onwards – but all the best bits from the early scene in Jamaica! The collection features some great gritty numbers that mix American R&B with the nascent Kingston groove that would later develop into reggae – often spurred along by some massively soulful instrumentation on tenor, trumpet, and trombone! The set list is great – the kind of gems that really get at the heart of ska at its best – and tracks include "Confucious" by Don Drummond, "Storm Warning" by Lyn Taitt & The Boys, "South China Sea" by John Dizzy Moore, "Ringo" by The Skatalites, "Love Me Or Leave Me" by Lloyd Clarke, "Hit You Let You Feel It" by The Tenor Twins, and "Come On My People" by Daniel Johnson.

✨✧ VariousSka From The Vaults Of Wirl Records ... CD
Kingston Sounds (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early ska material from a time when the genre was still really coming into its own – still unique, still soulful, and still free from so many of the cliches that would mar the style in later years! The music here is primal Jamaican ska – that first great step forward on the Kingston scene, after years of absorbing influences from American soul and R&B – as Jamaican musicians really found their own groove, and a way of mixing in some wonderfully jazzy instrumentation as well! Most cuts are instrumental – and sparkle from the contributions of Roland Alphonso and Tommy McCook on tenor, John Dizzy Moore on trumpet, Don Drummond on trombone, and Lester Sterling on alto – and the rhythms bubble up brilliantly from the bottom, with tight piano from Jackie Mittoo and guitar from Jerome Hines. Titles include "Chinatown", "The Reburial", "Live Wire", and "A Shot In The Dark" by The Skatalites – plus "VC 10" and "Determination" by Roland Alphonso, "Love In The Afternoon" by Don Drummond, and "South China Sea" by Johnny Moore.
