The Skatalites have been Jamaica's premier ska band since 1964 and have backed such music legends as Bob Marley, Toots and The Maytals, Alton Ellis and Ken Boothe to name a few. Their infectious brand of bluesy, jazzy ska spread like wildfire around the island and spawned the entire genres of ska, rocksteady, reggae, dub, two-tone, and 3rd wave ska. This excellent 16-track compilation collects rare tracks recorded at the legendary Randy's Studio in Kingston, Jamaica in the mid-60s. Only five tracks give The Skatalites top billing but the group is the backing band on the entire set. Highlights include: "Black Joe" by The Skatalites, Rum Bumper's "John & Alton," "Home Home Home" by Ken & Stranger, "A Way from It All" by Don Drummond, "Goodbye Pretty Darling" by Basil Babbidon and "Blow Roland Blow" by Roland Alphonso.
