Track Listing / Description

Trojan reissue the original 1969 Don Drummond Memorial album, both the original album mix and the original 45 mixes, not radically different but certainly some notable difference in the quality and urgency of sound and vibe. This is teamed with a second disc of ska sides out of Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle Studio featuring the likes of Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Baba Brooks and the hallowed Skatalites rhythm section. Laurence Cane-Honeysett’s excellent booklet notes examine in some depth the troubled Drummond’s entry into the Jamaican music scene, his unique musical gifts – he was rated by the American Jazz musician George Shearing and singer Sarah Vaughan as one of the top five trombonists of the day - and his fraught relationship with the beautiful dancer Marguerita Mahfood who died at Drummond’s hand, his incarceration in Jamaica’s notorious Belle Vue Mental Hospital and his tragic demise. Grim reading. Yet the music here is amongst the best of its kind ever made – he also worked extensively for Reid’s great rival Coxsone Dodd – full of joy and spirit.
