laurel aitken Rise & Fall: the Personal Selection 1960 to 1979 (LP, £15.95)label: grover
These tracks were originally released on Unicorn Records and haven't been available for a very long time. The tracks span Laurel Aitken's start in mento, blue beat and ska, through his legendary rocksteady and skinhead reggae years, all the way to the second wave of ska, a scene on which Aitken had a massive influence and where he was treated as a living legend and hero. This reissue comes with new artwork and sleeve notes.
