Description

The Skatalites were the definitive Jamaican group, who first came together in Kingston in the late 1950s and featured the acknowledged finest musicians in the country - Tommy McCook, Rolando Alphonso, Lester Sterling, Lloyd Brevett, Lloyd Knibb, Don Drummond, Jah Jerry Haynes, Jackie Mittoo, Johnny Moore and Jackie Opel. In 1963 they became the house band at Clement 'Sir Cosxone' Dodd's newly opened Studio One at 13 Brentford Road. The group played on every song cut at the studio, backing the greatest singers of the day - Bob Marley & The Wailers, Ken Boothe, Toots and The Maytals - as well as recording some of the finest instrumental music ever made under their own name. Here is a selection of some of their finest and hardest-to-find cuts made at Studio One between 1963-65. The album was originally released as a collectors 7-inch box set (now deleted) and is now available for the first time as a double LP edition complete with 10 extra bonus tracks and new extensive sleeve notes.
