Skatalites- Ball of Fire

   I started working on this post with a vague idea of a post about the Skatalites and a link to download… but they are such prolific artists that it seems a shame to be limited to one post one album, so this is the start of Skatalites Thursdays for a while.
The Skatalites were officially formed in 1964 in Jamaica with studio recording, release and subsequent tour supporting the Studio One album, Ska Authentic .
Ska music originated in the early 1960’s with music being performed and recorded in Jamaica rather than imported American music and recordings (some songs were cover songs popular at the time).
