The 12-track Skatalites album makes for a tidy sampler of some of the best sides the group cut for producer Duke Reid during the last days of Jamaican R&B and the early ska period. While by no means a definitive collection, Skatalite collates some choice cuts like 'Eastern Standard Time', 'Don-De-Lion' and 'Yard Broom' featuring the classic line-up on fine form, with Don Drummond on Trombone, Jackie Mittoo's piano and trumpeter Jonny 'Dizzy' Moore laying down some foundational rhythms. Tracklist: Side A: 1. Yard Broom 2. Carry-Go-Bring-Come 3. Twelve Minutes To Go 4. Magic 5. Strolling In 6. Dan-De-Lion Side B: 1. Apanga 2. Eastern Standard Time 3. Rough & Tough 4. Musical Store Room 5. When You Call My Name 6. River Bank.
