“The hottest Ska group in town is the Ska-talites. Last Sunday at Bournemouth was the likes of which you’ve never seen, with grown men prostrate at the tuffness of the sounds.” – THE STAR (JAMAICA)

“Even before they became a band, the members of The Skatalites were already trendsetters on the Jamaican music scene.” – ROLLING STONE

“The Skatalites, Jamaica’s supreme instrumental band.” – BILLBOARD
