This was actually released as a 7-inch box once, but The Skatalites – Independence Ska and The Far East Sound 1963 – 65 (Soul Jazz) is now back as an extended collection.
There are two versions of this, so it all depends which colour you prefer for Duke Reid Rock’s Steady on heavyweight vinyl.
If you don’t have much of the band in your collection, you might want to check out this new Skatalites compilation from Trojan.
Take your pick of CD or vinyl for the Studio One Rocksteady 2: The Soul Of Young Jamaica release from Soul Jazz.
I’m guessing you might already own the tracks on here, but if you don’t – or just want to add to your collection – so check out the upcoming Trojan Original Ska Classics.
Not sure it’s t-shirt weather right now, but if you are willing to brave it (and wear t-shirts), then you might want to check out these official Studio One label t-shirts.
Another mod-related box set on the market and like many others of late, Blue Beat is a budget one too.
Just out on the Soul Jazz label (today in fact) is the Studio One Ska Fever! compilation.
