The Originators Live
S. L. Winant | Seattle, WA United States | 07/26/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard the Skatalites on the "Story of Jamaican Music" box and got 'Guns of Navarone' stuck in my head for days. Now with this disc we hear that the Jamaican equivalent of Booker T and the MG's can still skank into the late night. It's great to hear them with good studio production, but the feeling is very live. It feels like an anniversary party for the band, and the welcome guests from the jazz community add to the good times. Unless you go back to the original recordings, this is an excellent first disc to get of the Skatalites. And a great party disc for any collection!"
Nothing Beats the Beginning

"This is the first Skatalites CD I've purchased. A couple of months ago I never knew that ska exsisted out side of the 3rd wave, but I'm glad I know more now. This is an excellent CD, conducted by the originators of ska. Every track is jazzy and up beat and they refrain from repition by making every song sound different (which seems difficult for some 3rd wave bands). This is a tight CD and I'm sure that any ska lover who picks it up won't be dissapointed."

"The problem I have with this band is one album seems pretty much like the next. They are great live and very enjoyable on disk. This album has the benifit of vocals which many of there other albums don't. The vocals make a wonderful difference."
