2/21/2013 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

 

(2/21/13)

In the “Ooh”… Driving west, we left Earth for some duck soup and a melody jamboree with Doreth …and that was just the first 15 minutes! Later, we encountered a bit of a mystery involving a tune Best of The Skatalites identifies as “Don’t Slam the Door”. Mystery: another Skatalites cut also goes by this title, and this tune also goes by another title! We've come to the conclusion that this tune is in fact "Always On Sunday". Sherwood hit a couple of new releases in his early going . Ambrus Kyri sang the Lollipop this week, the 5@5:05 was a broadly-themed “US Ska” set, and the Eskargot Miles again took us “Around the World in 80 Days”… in only 5:28! Now, that’s time compression!
