JAMES BOND SKA
Spy Vibers, I'm on a mission and look forward to sharing photographs with you from all the major filming locations from the great 1960s series like The Prisoner, The Avengers, The Saint, and many more. Stay tuned! I'll try to post updates en route. In the meantime, check out a Spy Vibe classic that may have slipped off the radar. 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 Love. The 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!
