UK release on the blue Coxsone label with stamped matrix and laminated sleeve. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

The sleeve credits Roland Alphanso and His Orchestra, but this is really a Various Artists compilation featuring instrumental tracks by Jackie Mittoo, the Soul Brothers, the Soul Vendors and the Skatalites, with additional vocal tracks by the Wailers, the Viceroys and the Soulettes.

This was the third title in the series of much sought after LPs released in the UK on the fabled blue Coxsone label. Not to be confused with SKA-AU-GO-GO1, the original Jamaican issue on the ND Records label with a slightly different track list.
