1/6 in a nutshell…
Let’s cut straight to the new feature inaugurated this week… the GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-Of-The-Month Club! This month: Byron Lee’s Jamaica Ska, and strictly cover versions thereof, and starting off the feature with a mystery record we couldn’t trace back to its original source! All we know is, somewhere in Mexico back in the ’60s, Jamaica Ska was covered by somebody named Tammy. Tammy who? Mystery. Label? Mystery. Ever officially released? Mystery. And this thing’s good. Real good! The 4@4 was basically an Air Space Museum of Ska, the Opening Oldies set began incorporating more post-‘60s ska, and on the Funn front, Milt Jackson and Xavier Cugat had an extra candle on their cakes this week. Pffffff!
