This is Top Notch Ska produced at Studio One by C.S Dodd. Some nice rare tracks selected by Gaz Mayall. Outstanding instrumental tracks by the Skatalites and the Soul Brothers "Soho". My pick is the hypnotic "Rude Boy Charlie" by Charlie Organaire (this will no doubt be a big hit in royal circles!) Don Drummond on"Last Call" makes for a fine CD. Great photo of Don Drummond together with mostly rare Clement Dodd black and white prints in the booklet. It a pity the notes are in Japanese. Issued on Island Rock A Shacka CD UPCH 1262 Japan.
