Sublime spiritual roots, late Studio One style (though ‘I Am The Ruler’ Ellis aka King Rocky cut some top-notch rocksteady there, too). It would have fitted well on the Studio One Disco Mix compilation. Murder.

Scorcher. Ska at the threshold of rocksteady. Mittoo and Dizzy Moore do it to it.

Terrific excursion on The Silvertones’ Smile rhythm.

Coxsone Dodd’s is still the best compilation of Ken Boothe at Brentford Road.

‘There’s no meat on the bone… All our heads gonna roll… Every step you make, man, you’ll slide…Them a locust — feedin — upon I and I flesh. The more them get the more them want.’ Ghost Train To Skaville.

Rollicking I’m Just A Guy deejay excursion about a bloke called Kipling with a shop in Constance Spring which is out of chicken (but can he sing). Syrians and Chinese, gather round. Ribbit.

Gorgeous Champagne King version; the bees’ knees of disco-reggae.
