Would Reggae music exist without the Skatalites or Ska-talites as their name was written in the early beginnings? It wasn’t just records they made, it was the multitude of ideas. First released in 1964 on coloured vinyl, the original Ska Authentic album (on ND Records, Studio One’s parent label) is one of the rarest albums in the entire Studio One catalog. The LP was followed by Ska Authentic Volume 2, a 1965 compilation with similar artwork to the 1964 LP, also released on ND Records. Barbados-born Jackie Opel, known as the ‘Jackie Wilson of Jamaica’, was a popular but somewhat underrated singer who possessed a rich, powerful voice with a high octave range as can be heard on his entertaining track. And then there’s the mega rare top Ska tune Mother In Law by Lee Perry, a song with lyrics some of the male listeners surely can relate to.

The original members had played on hundreds of recording sessions before forming the band in 1964. They backed most of the vocalists in Jamaica at that time, including Bob Marley, Toots and The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Alton Ellis,Ken Boothe and many more. After disbanding in 1965 the individual members continued playing in various groups as the music evolved from ska to rocksteady to reggae. In the late 70's a resurgence of interest in the music began in the . which caused the creation of many bands such as The Specials, The English Beat, Madness, The Selecter and Bad Manners.
