First digital release of long lost 1966 LP, Includes 34 tracks new to CD. Features some of Jamaica's biggest Ska artists. Originally scheduled for release in 1966 by leading Afro-Caribbean music specialists, R&B Records, "The Ska From Jamaica" album remained lost for well over half a century before the ¼" master tape was finally discovered in the Trojan archives earlier this year. Featuring tracks by numerous talents now widely regarded as Jamaican legends, the LP showcased the work of leading producer, Lindon Pottinger, comprising a dozen top quality tracks from his Gaydisc/SEP catalogue that first saw issue in the UK on R&B's venerated Ska Beat label between 1964 and '66. The album finally saw release on vinyl as an extremely limited Record Store Day release in August and with this 2CD set has been expanded to include a further 47 Pottinger-produced recordings. With over 30 tracks unavailable on any format since the Sixties and virtually all other tracks unavailable for decades, the collection is a ska fan's dream and in combination with the companion volume, "Festival Jump Up" (DBCDD 046), presents the opportunity to discover and enjoy the most popular works of one of the most influential, yet underrated, record producers in Jamaican music history.
