** Doreen Shaffer ~ "The First Lady of Reggae" ~ Original 1970 Economy/Pama Release SECO 31 ~ RARE Roots, Reggae, Ska ** Highly sought after release from one of the founders of the powerhouse group credited with the creation of Ska! If you have never heard her I can tell you, this lady has a gorgeous voice! Vinyl Condition: VG++ - Has writing on one side of label. Shows nominal superficial surface abrasions and one tiny (like 4 bars of a song) factory bump on one side that causes a couple of pops. Has been play tested with no skipping, sounds great! Jacket Condition: VG - Condition is what you would expect considering the age and how flimsy it was to begin with. Seam split at bottom, serious ring and age wear and noticeable discoloration. On the plus side the graphic is intact and the colors are still vivid. The bottom seam has been neatly taped and the lp is housed in a clean new inner sleeve. Background: Doreen Shaffer is one of the founding members of The Skatalites, a seminal ska band which originated in Jamaica in 1964. As early 60's studio musicians in Jamaica they had anonymously backed the likes of Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Toots and The Maytalls, Prince Buster, Ken Boothe & Alton Ellis leaving their contributions to Jamaican popular music largely overlooked so they formed a band of their own. Although officially The Skatalites were only together for about 15 months, disbanding in 1965, they are acknowledged to have created the roots of the tree which has branched into reggae, dub, lover’s rock, two-tone, ska-punk, ska-jazz, and ragga. “Ska is ubiquitous, and there’s no disputing that the Skatalites they started it all. When you consider the influence that their various alumni had on subsequent styles of Jamaican music, you could argue that they are one of the most influential groups in 20th century popular music.” CARTER VAN PELT "Even before they became a band, the members of The Skatalites were trendsetters in the Jamaican music scene." "…Jamaica’s answer to the Motown house band and Booker T. & the MG’s combined" ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE All of my photos are ALWAYS of the actual item being sold!!
