The Ethiopians – Train To Skaville
label: JJ Records
side a: Train To Skaville
side b: Version
Now this is what I call a DLHWI record! And it’s a good, hard enough sounding reissue, too. Produced by the legendary Duke Reid, “Train To Skaville” is an absolute classic by the group formed by Leonard Dillon (aka mento artist Jack Sparrow), Stephen Taylor and Aston Morris, although the latter had already left the group when they recorded the track. Albert Griffiths (who would go on to form The Gladiators) was a member briefly and he’s singing on “Train To Skaville”.
