Fire! The Federal musical director walks it like he talks it. Blazing horns and jazzy brilliance all round.

Burning sufferers ska to run alongside Vernon Allen’s Babylon. Too hot for the Jamaican Skarama LP (and unissued before now). Tell them, Monty.

This beautiful acoustic cut is previously unissued. Raw soulful lovers, with close-harmony backing, and double bass and guitar as irresistible as Egyptian Reggae. Terrific.

A tear-up duet, with The Skatalites on the boil; and some nice, searing JA soul from Dobby Dobson, with wailing organ and hefty backbeat.
