LAUREL AITKEN - THE FANTASTIC LAUREL AITKEN
Remastered and extended by 4 bonus tracks version of the early 70s album of the Godfather of Ska, which was reissued here for the first time on vinyl with a total of 16 songs. In 1970 he had already established himself as the forefather of British reggae. In 1960 he moved to England and dominated the Jamaican music scene on the island from the very beginning. After eleven years of consistent success on every major Caribbean label, he was no longer satisfied with his success and began to look for new challenges. So he took the unusual step of transferring the distribution of his latest recordings to mainland Europe and North America. For British fans, the battle began for the few copies of the album originally released on the Belgian label Hebra that were available via export.
