Several great cuts from a Ska saint
(4 out of 5 stars)
"What can I say except you have to buy this one. There are several great songs on this album. My favorite is Don Drummond, it's a tribute song to him. You have to buy this because it features the sax playing of the late great Tommy McCook and like all deceased people he won't be playing any more music. Ska lost another originator with his passing, so take this opportunity to keep his memory alive forever! Sure, they will be digging through those studio vaults looking for old sub-par cuts from years gone by, and then turning those songs into albums, but this one has power, clarity and great rythm. Four or five great songs are on this album plus a couple dub mixes, even a tribute to Princess Diana, what a sad irony. Who knows if the Skatalites will ever tour again. Their numbers are dwindling. This album is a must get if you are a fan of good ska, add in the fear of never skankin' to the skatalites live again and it goes doubly so! I almost forgot to mension this. ! The band playing is a great line-up. I don't have the album with me right now, but I know it had Lord Bravo amongst many other band members from several old bands."
