PARTY: SKATALITES

We're having a dance party at Spy Vibe this weekend and a number of old tunes are making their way back to our secret lair. Today has been filled with agents doing James Bond, so we're going to say goodnight with the classic Monty Norman theme done by The Skatalites. The track is credited to Roland Alphonso. Alphonso was born in Cuba and moved to Jamaica at the age of two. A founding member of the Skatalites, he released the tune on Island Records in 1966 (cat#WI-259) backed with "Just Keep it Up" by Lee Perry. He also recorded a version of From Russia With LoveThe Skatalites started playing in Jamaica in 1964 and were together until 1982. They recently reformed after a long hiatus, so go check them out on tour. Enjoy!
