After marrying and rereleasing their finest moments from 1961 to 1970, Roy Panton and Yvonne Harrison have recorded a new single. “Oh la la” is -I’m terribly sorry to say so- a weak tune with even weaker, soulless backing by the Shifters. The Rock Steady tune on the flip is quite a scorcher, though.
Thank you for supporting the Legends of Ska film project. The time has come to spread our wings and fly. Join us this week for the World Premiere at Rototom Sunsplash, Europe’s largest Jamaican music festival. Please have patience if you are waiting for the DVD and Soundtrack. Much is needed to be completed before those items can be sent out. Forward ever. Brad
Rumour has it that even though they’re not yet released, there are only a few copies left of the limited edition LP of the Phoneix City All Stars’.
The album “Skatisfaction” features members from Pama International, The Specials, Intensified, The Sidewalk Doctors, Kasabian, Dub Vendor All-stars, The Delegators and more playing Rolling Stones tunes in a great Ska style.
