Notes

In 1983 the original Skatalites (minus trombonist Don Drummond) re-formed to appear at Jamaica’s Sunsplash Festival. While preparing for the show, they recorded 11 tracks at the newly opened Music Mountain studio.
It's not entirely clear what happened at those sessions, but it seems that after 5 days of recording the band members fell out. By then 9 tracks had been more-or-less completed, and on the remaining 2 no horn parts were recorded.
This album contains the 9 completed tracks that are previously unreleased.
