    Brand new Studio One release!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The 'This Is Jamaica Ska' album, when first released, followed in the footsteps of the successful Ska Authentic releases and also marked the first time that Clement Dodd began to showcase on LP his new discovery, the Wailers, who had begun tearing up the dances in Kingston with “Simmer Down”. This song had been held for exclusive use in the dances before it was finally put out on 45, now it gained album status marking the increased visibility of the group in the marketplace. In addition to “Simmer Down” two other songs by the Wailers are also found on the album; “How Many Times”, and the blazing cover of Jimmy Clanton’s “Go Jimmy Go” which Clement Dodd had proposed for the group to incorporate into their repertoire.

    Also found on This Is Jamaica Ska are songs by Bajan Jackie Opel, a prolific hit maker for the label in this period, with the ribald “Push Wood” and the popular duet “The Vow” with Doreen Schaffer. Anchored by the instrumentals of Roland Alphonso (Clement Dodd’s good friend), Don Drummond’s “Roll On Sweet Don” (here in it’s correct form), The Skatalites mento inspired Salt Lane Gal, and mighty vocal outings by the cream of the label’s stars this became a monumental release. Special mention to “Bongo Tango” with features what is basically a drum solo by Lloyd Knibb throughout the entire song! The cover for This Is Jamaica Ska alone is iconic in Ska circles and here taken from the original WIRL release.

    Transferred in 2020 from the original master tapes This Is Jamaica Ska is a welcome addition to the Studio One Original Masters Series Archive.
