Description

Essential singles collection documenting the early days of the man the world will always remember as the 'Godfather of Ska'. Born in Cuba in 1927 but raised in Jamaica, Laurel Aitken played an important role in the growth of the Mento music (indigenous Jamaican folk-based music, blending elements of European melody and African rhythm) phenomenon, while the Jamaican music industry was taking its first, hesitant steps back in 1958. Including such classics as the ‘Day-O’-influenced 'Mass Charlie' or the pivotal 'Calypso Rock ‘n’ Roll', this is a must-have for anyone willing to know more on the origins of Rocksteady and Ska.
