Description

Fantastic Laurel Aitken on LP

Re-mastered and expanded edition of this hyper-rare early '70 s release from the 'Godfather of Ska'. By 1970, Laurel Aitken was well and truly established as the Father of British Reggae, having dominated the country's Jamaican music scene since his arrival at the start of the '60 s. But having enjoyed success with every UK-based West Indian record company of note over the previous eleven years, he was no longer content with simply domestic triumphs and set his sights on conquering foreign territories. So it was he took the unusual step of licensing his next album to companies in Europe and North America, while leaving his legions of British fans scrambling for the few copies available on import. Originally out on the Belgian label 'Hebra' 42 years ago and never reissued ever since, this is one of the not to be missed 70 s ska classics finally back on vinyl, with the addition of 4 bonus tracks!
