Product Details

The Godfather of Ska's career obviously didn't end with the rise of Rock Steady, for Laurel Aitken's hit-strewn path continued apace right up to the beginnings of the roots age. Aitken was indeed the High Priest of Reggae, especially in the genre's early years, during which time the prolific Aitken littered the landscape with 45s that tore up British dancefloors and were particularly popular with the skinheads. 1970 's High Priest of Reggae set gathered up a dozen of these recent club classics, all self-productions recorded over the previous year, and mostly released on the Pama label's Nu Beat imprint. A trio of tracks were bouncy instrumentals where Aitken plays DJ, including the wildly popular shoot' em up "Jesse James," the jumping "Mr. Popcorn," and the knees up adulation for the misspelled "Hailes Selaise."
