Roland Alphonso & Team prior to "Phoenix City", again with a Coxsone session rippling with all those primitive inclusions we have all grown to adore..
The Soul Brothers of course were an A-list gathering of the Island's finest musicians, who's freedom of expression threw up some wonderfully inspired moments, on this recording I particularly enjoyed the sultry girl vocal intro, before the brass pumps it's way through. Trumpets, Saxophone, deliberating primitive piano plonking, off the scale trumpeting constant Ska pulses are decorated by with shrill girl-group chants of "Sugar & Spice".

Calculatedly primitive, supremely inventive SKA dance..

Flip over "Get Out Of My Life" is another authentic SKA journey littered with moments of raw brilliance, showcasing Roland's gift for manipulating the Sax.

A strong double helping of the sound.
