KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
"This week we are back at 13 Brentford Road, Kingston, Jamaica, with Clement "Sir Coxsone" Dodd at the controls for The Skatalites' "Freedom Sounds", first released on the "Ska Authentic" LP in 1964...
"I have seen this credited to Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso and just The Skatalites (there is also a rock steady version by The Soul Vendors) but being as they were both in The Skatalites, I am going to stick to that 'umbrella' credit. It was omitted from the 1967 UK issue of "Ska Authentic" which only adds to the confusion, but there is no confusion once you hear the tune.
A heavyweight ska classic that became something of a theme for the various line ups of Skatalites that played over the years. Absolutely crucial !" - KV
