Freedom Sounds: A Tribute to the Skatalites

Shanachie 5727 CD, released 1997 (U.S.)

Contains the Slackers track "Calypso Jazz"

For a Skatalites tribute, this CD left me a little unsatisfied. There is some good material on here, but nothing that really keeps me coming back. The Slackers track was exclusive to this release until it was included as a digital bonus track for the re-pressing of Redlight.
