"In 1983 the original Skatalites (minus trombonist Don Drummond) re-formed to appear at Jamaica’s Sunsplash Festival where they supported Peter Tosh. While they were in JA preparing for the show, they recorded eleven tracks at the newly opened Music Mountain studio prompted by Jackie MIttoo and under the guidance of producer/promoter Tony Owens. This was almost the last time the Skatalites recorded in the country of their birth" -
