The legendary Skatalites, alongside the later Studio One in-house bands - the Soul Vendors, Sound Dimension, Soul Defenders and Brentford Road All Stars – were as much a part of the classic Studio One sound as were the singers that they accompanied such as Alton Ellis, Horace Andy, Marcia Griffiths and Bob Marley and The Wailers. This album features many of the musicians involved with Studio One who literally defined Reggae music. From the Skatalites members Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo to killer sidemen such as trombonist Vin Gordon (A/K/A Don Drummond Jnr), saxophonist Cedric "Im" Brooks, keyboardist and Twelve Tribes of Israel member Pablove Black.
