Skatalites- Treasure Isle Time

Skatalites Treasure Isle Time is the selection for today’s episode of Skatalites Thursday. Treasure Isle was Duke Reid’s record label (an early Ska and rocksteady DJ and record producer, for more see wiki). It was recorded by Isle Records without Don Drummond, so I am guessing that these are recordings from early 1965, because Drummond was jailed for the Jan. 1, 1965 murder of his girlfriend (she wouldn’t stop talking) and before the Skatalites played their last show (before splitting up temporarily) in August 1965.
