5.0 out of 5 stars The granddaddy's of modern day ska 22 Mar 2004
By Gareth
Format:Audio CD
The Skatalites are by no doubt the godfathers of ska. Their off-beat guitar rhythms combined with hard-driving bass riffs and unforgettable horn parts shaped and defined early ska. Although there are very few lyrics (a total of five words) this is a "ska-tastic" album. It contains songs recorded with various producers, which gives a nice insight to the industry of the time, as well as a variety of different sounding music.
I would recommend this CD to anyone wishing to discover more about the origins of modern day ska.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Ska 13 Nov 2004
By Mailian
Format:Audio CD
This compilation of Top Deck recordings from 1964-65 features the best of Don Drummond and the Skatalites.
Fully rehearsed and well recorded by producer Justin Yap each track is a true ska classic. Absolute favourites are the often sampled Confucius, the terrific Smiling and the driving Chinatown. This cd is quite short (less than 40') but for once I cannot dock a star because this is Top Ska.

5.0 out of 5 stars the skatalites' finest moment 21 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
my favourite tracks are confucious and chinatown - the names are very apt for the skatalites' sound as a whole - with echoes of an oriental minor key.

i've been listening to most of these tracks at "gaz's rockin blues" for 20 years without knowing their titles - and today i found them out, thanks to the "lucky kitty radio show" (both of which can be found online)...and i'm now placing an order for this fantastic album.
