Coming soon: New Skatalites compilation from Trojan

If you don’t have much of the band in your collection, you might want to check out this new Skatalites compilation from Trojan.

Going by the name of The Best Of The Skatalites, this is two-CD set and part of a group of similar releases (although perhaps the only one that fits on these pages).

This collection picks out the best of the band’s tracks recorded for Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle Records, with 40 tracks in total collected here over those two discs.

If you fancy a copy, you can check out what made the cut below and pre-order online right now. The release date is 24th February 2017 and the price is £8.55.
