The 12-track Skatalites album do make for a tidy sampler of some of the best sides the group cut for producer Duke Reid during the last days of Jamaican R&B and the early ska period. While by no means a definitive collection, Skatalite collates some choice cuts like 'Eastern Standard Time', 'Don-De-Lion' and 'Yard Broom' featuring the classic line-up on fine form, with Don Drummond on Trombone, Jackie Mittoo's piano and trumpeter Jonny "Dizzy" Moore laying down some foundational rhythms.

Available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on orange vinyl.
