Calling all rude boys and girls.

How the people remember: Nights of sensation and pure excitement at: Ram Jam and Blue Ribbon club,Limbo and Flamingo, Brixton Hall and Stoke Newington Town Hall - not forgetting the place called the Roaring Twenties - catering to the cats from far and near with music to shake the nation to the foundation,plus one hundred blues dance every Saturday night for ten years,with sound system competition between: Count Suckle, Count Shelley,Coxson(UK),Sir Collins,Sir Biggs the President and Duke Vin the Tickler - but them can't get no Red Stripe beer fe sell in a dance at night.

But time longer than rope and this is the sound that goes around, so here it is again....INTENSIFIED!

Hail and salute these wonderful musicians who supply all backing for these records.

From this nucleus came the group known variously as The Skatalites, The Karl Bryan Orchestra, Roland Al and The Soul Brothers, The Don Drummond All Stars and Tommy McCook and His Supersonics.
