(5 out of 5 stars)
"I would have given it a 4.5 if the system allowed it.
Track 1: 5 Instrumental- The tempo of take 3 without as much power in the drums and base.
Track 2: 4.5 Instrumental featuring Johnny Moore.
Track 3: 4.5 Balled- Short and R&B-ish
Track 4: 5 Ramblin Jazz- Excelent traditional jazz track by the Skatalites.
Track 5: 3.5 Soulda ben an instrumental- The backing instrumentation is great and the lyrics are decent... but the guy reciting them cannot sing to save his life. This would be a great track for a cover, if a decent singer where provided.
Track 6: 5 Instrumental- featuring Johnny Moore
Track 7: 5 Singing backed by the skatalites.
Track 8: 5 Instrumental- Best track. Not the Skatalites but reminiscent of their best classics.
Track 9: 5 On the disc is actualy Money or love.
Track 10: 5 Instrumental
Track 11: 5 Instrumental- Typical Skatalite greatness.
Track 12: 4.5 Instrumental
Track 13: 5 Instrumental- Typical Skatalite greatness.
