Featuring classic cuts from the originators of Ska - The Skatalites, The Wailers, Lee Perry - alongside a heavy dose of superb rarities from the mighty vaults of 13 Brentford Road. Soul Jazz Records’ new ‘Studio One Ska Fever’ goes back to the early 1960s, when Ska was the soundtrack to Jamaica’s independence, Sir Coxsone ruled the land & The Skatalites & Studio One were creating history on a daily basis with an endless stream of blistering, scorching classic tunes. This album includes an incredible line up of only the finest artists in reggae music & The accompanying booklet contains extensive sleevenotes from Studio One historian Rob Chapman (author of ‘Never Grow Old’ and ‘Downbeat Special’).
