• Roland Alphonso – Ska-Culation
    • Jack Sparrow – Ice Water
    • 1. Ska-Culation
    • 2. Jack Sparrow – Ice Water

    The Skatalites’ killer shot interpretation of the world’s famous electric guitar inst, and the fully carnival-mode Ska played by a luxurious bunch of musicians. Originally played by the American electric guitar band, this is the proof of how Jamaicans won’t miss no trends. Guaranteed killer up-tempo Ska! Identical to the originals on flip by Jack Sparrow later known as Leonard Dillon of the Ethiopians, this praiseworthy piece features the Wailers on backing vocals.
