Ernest Ranglin Mod Mod Ranglin on LP
Mod Mod Ranglin is a fusion of Ska and Caribbean instrumentals by Ernest Ranglin recorded in 1966 while Ska was changing towards Rocksteady. Although Ernest Ranglin recorded eight solo albums at Federal Records, Mod Mod Ranglin was the only album with Ska instrumentals, interestingly. The album consists of some of the most classic Ska, Mento and Carribean songs of all time. From the start to the end, Ernie's guitar playing flutters like a Caribbean breeze. The instrumental song entitled "Felicia" is a perfect number for all Ska lovers.
