Reissue of the classic 1969 album.

Don Drummond was a legendary figure in the golden age of ska where his musicianship and compositions made such a lasting impact. He was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1932, and played with many luminaries of the Jamaican music scene, most famously with the Skatalites from 1964 until his conviction for murder in 1965. He died in an asylum, reputedly of suicide, in 1969 after a lifetime plagued by mental illness.

This album was originally released on vinyl in 1969 after his death, but this release has additional material from Treasure Isle's back catalogue including the original ska versions of songs remixed for the earlier release, the complete track list from an album released as The Skatalite and other Drummond recordings from 1961-4.
