back An excellent collection of the Skatalites mainly instrumental tracks. During their short existence (1963-65) The Skatalites recorded 100s of their own songs, released either under their own name, as a backing band or that of band members Don Drummond, Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso and Dizzy 'Johnny' Moore. This is the first collection on Soul Jazz Records to bring you some of their finest material from classics such as ‘Guns of Navarone’, ‘El Pussy Cat Ska’, ‘Christine Keeler’ and 'Beardsman Ska' through to rarities such as The Wailers ,'Tell Them Lord', Dizzy Johnny Moore and The Studio One Orchestra’s ‘Sudden Destruction’ and Don Drummond’s ‘Coolie Boy’. Very interesting booklet and notes. Issued on Soul Jazz Records SJR CD375.
