El sello  Heartbeat sumerge una vez más en esa bóveda aparentemente sin fondo de clásicas grabaciones  de la disquera Treasure Isle y sale con otra colección de primera categoría de ska vintage. Como siempre, los grandes nombres y los innovadores están bien representados : los legendarios Skatalites comprobar  instrumentalmente con " Sailing Along" y Strolling In " y de nuevo el gran dúo de canto Owen & Leon Silvera en " Skill and Craft . " El genio trombón fallecido Don Drummond juega su propio " Don de León" ( " Don de león")  el Baba Brooks Band en " Melody Jamboree. " Y Stranger Cole hace su aparición inevitable , haciendo equipo con the Silveras en la encantador tema  " Koo Koo Do. " Pero algunas de las mejores pistas son aportados por los artistas menos conocidos , como Los Slickers, cuyo " hombre va a comer  a un hombre " es una pieza extraña de la escatología musical, y los Milagros , que llevan los Skatalites a través del genéro ¿Qué he hecho yo " . Casi cualquier colección Treasure Isle es un buen lugar para empezar a  explorar el ska de la vieja escuela y el rocksteady ; a diferencia de muchos .

The Heartbeat label dips yet again into that seemingly bottomless vault of classic Treasure Isle recordings and comes up with yet another top-notch collection of vintage ska. As always, the great names and innovators are well represented: the legendary Skatalites check in instrumentally with "Sailing Along" and the blues-based "Strolling In," and they back up the great singing duo Owen & Leon Silvera on "Skill and Craft." The late trombone genius Don Drummond plays his own "Don de Lion" ("Don de lion," get it?) and leads the Baba Brooks Band on "Melody Jamboree." And Stranger Cole makes his inevitable appearance, teaming up with the Silveras on the charming "Koo Koo Do." But some of the best tracks are contributed by more obscure artists, including the Slickers, whose "Man Is Going to Eat Man" is a bizarre piece of musical eschatology, and the Miracles, who lead the Skatalites through the generic but nicely rocking "What Have I Done." Just about any Treasure Isle collection is a good place to start when exploring old-school ska and rocksteady; unlike many, this one is both fully licensed and generously packed. ~ Rick Anderson
