Tommy McCook is one of the giants of ska music. His tenor sax solos propelled the Skatalites to worldwide acclaim and made ska an international phenomenon. McCook (and Roland Alphonso -- the other tenor ska giant), created some of the most exciting music heard anywhere -- a ska meltdown of the highest degree! This collection brings together Tommy's greatest and most-requested recordings -- a stunning tour de force album. Blistering solos over raging ska vamps, top Studio One hits ('Exodus,' 'Freedom Sounds,' 'Peanut Vendor'), here are 18 top ska tracks hits -- most never before issued on CD -- for your dancing and listening pleasure. This is the original ska. Produced by the legendary father of ska, Clement Dodd of Studio One.
