This upload was 9th in the #ska chart.
Selection of some of my oldest Jamaican records, all original 45s. I found most of them in Rockfort, East Kingston, which is a nice symbol I think...As the title says, they came a long way (almost 60 years for some of them) so they're pretty far from mint. They're still very listenable I think but, well, you've been warned ! :-) There's at least one Trinidadian artist (Mighty Duke, and probably Lord Black Kat too), but it's a jamaican WIRL release. All the others, unless I'm mistaken, are Jamaicans.
Hope you'll enjoy the ride waaaaay back in the days !
