10/21 in a nutshell…
Annette Funicello’s 1964 cover of Byron Lee’s Jamaica Ska kicks off a hat trick of openers… Jamaica Ska, Rock Steady and Funkey Reggae (the latter featuring Tommy McCook’s Supersonics and Dave Double Barrel Barker, then-future member of The Selecter), followed by one of the most convincingly groovy ’60s Skas ever to be crafted outside JA or the UK_ Mi Nena Ska by Conjunto Habana… from Mexico! Next comes more of the genuine Jamaican article, plus newer international stompers from Blue Beat Players (Japan), Proyecto Secreto (Belgium/Chile) and The Fenicians (Spain). Sherwood sets sail in Hour 2 with a dreamy Terry Hall/Lynval Golding take of 96 Tears that dates to the bustup of The Specials, and for whatever reason never saw official release! Go figure. Later, we finally get around to new stuff by Either/Orchestra and Phil Hawkins… what took us so long??? You’ll be hearing more from these in coming weeks. The first of a 2-part Sisterhood of Japanese Ska gives us the 4:00 4(+3)-in-a-row, and this week’s Lollipop goes to Los Catinos, who deliver the second Bombon in as many weeks. Selecter rarity The Whisper kicks off the rest of the party… Hearty!
