Skatalites - Stretching Out album

Size MP3 album: 1165 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1135 mb.

Additionally, with their lead-part jazz-styled horn solos anchored on the rocksteady groove and long, hypnotic, and festive jams, the Skatalites were and are guaranteed to spice up any blue mood, and "Freedom Sounds" and "Guns of Navarone" retain the original bounce and a smile that music can't often manage without pretense. A few more Skatalites have also sadly died, and another has retired after triple-bypass heart surgery, meaning 1983 was everyone's last chance for the original (making Stretching Out doubly documentary)

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). 1. 30. Freedom Sounds. You will NOT be dissapointed in Stretching Out. Perhaps the best Ska CD ever. And why not, the best guys, the best songs, with 20 years of practice, doing it spontaneously. Oh, and I saw them 2x in the early 1990s, and this IS what they sounded like. They even recreate the smokey live sound of the original recordings.

Listen free to The Skatalites – Stretching Out (Freedom Sounds, Bridge View and more). In 1983 Herbie Miller, manager of Peter Tosh brought the original Skatalites (minus the late Don Drummond) back to Jamaica from all over the world to perform at the 1983 Jamaica Sunsplash. The Skatalites had broken up 18 years earlier, after their short career of two years (1963-1965). Personal disagreements, conflicts and animosities had driven these inventors of Ska and master musicians to seek their own future as individual artists.

Consumer Guide Album. Skatalites: Stretching Out Recorded live in 1983 on a two-track TEAC and God knows what else by a reconstituted bunch of originators, some of whom hadn't seen one another in a decade and wished it was longer, this a-side retrospective sounds better than the '60s studio rarities Top Deck compiled a few years ago. and is a lot of fun to boot. We're talking party soundtrack for lazybones, the universal polka hop-and-shuffle of a thousand folk dances
