The Clash Of The Ska Titans 2CD
SKA HISTORY!
Over 50 minutes of classic Tradional Ska! These legendary 1996 historic recordings from the Founding Fathers of Ska THE SKATALITES and the Godfather of Ska LAUREL AITKEN were the first studio sessions with these two ska legends....some 30 years since their first recordings together in Jamaica.
This release has now been extended to include a bonus live album captured during the legendary Ska Spalsh tour of 1996.
The album features new excellent studio versions of Laurel Aitken’s "Rude Boy Dreams” , "It’s Too late” and "Bad Minded Woman” as well as new recordings of Ska classics like ‘In The Mood For Ska’ and The Skatalites fave… ‘Come Down’.

Original Albums Collection: 5CD Clamshell Box Set Edition
•    Four classic 1960s studio albums plus a 24 track singles and rarities collection

•    Features ‘Ska With Laurel’. ‘Laurel Aitken Says Fire’, ‘Scandal In A Brixton Market’ and ‘The High Priest Of Reggae’.

•    Excellent value 5CD clamshell box set with LP reproduction wallet sleeves.

•    72 tracks of trailblazing ska, blue beat and high end reggae across five CDs.

•    The REAL sound of 1960s London!

From Cuba to Brixton, via Kingston, Laurel Aitken carried his share of the precious seeds of what was to become reggae music. From its blue beat, calypso tinged origins in the ‘50s to the battle tracks, musical diary entries and social comment of the mid-late 1960s that set the tone for punk rock and hip hop a decade later, this master craftsman cut side after high quality side for Pama Records, Dr Bird, Rio, Island and others, creating a vibrant catalogue that stands tall among the canon of music of West Indian origin today.

NB: This product is released September 15th and will not be dispatched before this date.
