Special : In the Sixties… Vol. 3

23Ska60sOnce again I go back into the vault, or rather the internet trying to once again learn more about the origins of the music I love so much and when I come across a particular outstanding gem I save for a podcast like this. Oh yeah, 60s Ska from some the true originators. If you can’t get down to some of these songs, well, I don’t know what is wrong with your feet, sir or ma’am, because I know that I’m straight up dancing or tappin’ my feet with out abandon.

Keith & Ken – I Won’t Let You Go (Jamaican Jerk ’66)
Hopeton Lewis – Cool Collie (007 / Cool Collie / Judge Dread in Court ’67)
Pat Kelley – If it Don’t Work Out (If it Don’t Work Out / I am Coming Home ’69)
Prince Buster – Faith (Faith / 707 ’63)
Alton Ellis – Willow Tree (Dance Crasher / Willow Tree ’65)
