"Ska never stopped you know! From it’s Jamaican music if the piano’s not playing ska or the guitar… any music you have… reggae… even the computer music… the piano’s playing ‘ska, ska, ska…’ it leads the music so ska is still the backbone of Jamaican music. Right?" - Bunny Lee. The music of Jamaica has had a profound and lasting influence all around the world and reggae is the name by which it has become universally known. Although the term ska is often used to describe all Jamaican music before dub, deejays and dread in the mid seventies the real Jamaican ska was made in Kingston between 1961/1962 and 1966. This compilation features 14 tracks on vinyl and 16 on CD, classic ska tunes from The Skatalites, Don Drummond, Daniel Johnson, Lloyd Clarke, Roland Alphonso, The Tenor Twins, and more.
