Original Jamiacan issue from 1964, released on the ND Records label and manufactured by West Indies Records Limited. The catalogue number is printed on the spine. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

This is a compilation of tracks by various artists, not to be confused with the UK release from 1967 SKA AUTHENTIC : PRESENTING THE ORIGINAL SKATALITES FROM JAMAICA, with which it shares the same sleeve design (by Roy Tomlinson). It can also be found on coloured vinyl.

Jamiacan repress on a Studio 1 label, date unknown. This is the only copy I have seen (and it appears to have been issued in a PRESENTING THE ORIGINAL SKA-TALITES FROM JAMAICA sleeve).
