Featuring the Skatalites, Lee Perry, Jackie Mittoo, Bob Marley The Wailers, Roland Alphonso and The Soul Brothers, this new 2LP edition is fully remastered and expanded to a massive 18 super rare and killer cuts from the Studio One empire.

Extensive sleeve-notes discuss the connections between James Bond, Jamaica and Ska music. Jamaica was the setting for Dr. No, Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun and the recent ‘No Time to Die’, and the home for Bond’s creator Ian Fleming. There is also an extended essay on The Skatalites and their post-modern love and ska-ification of all styles of music – from classical music to TV themes, from detective movies to Fiddler on the Roof!

Aside from the James Bond-related cuts this album also includes killer tracks from the secret agent 1969 spoof ‘Our Man Flint', the Clint Eastwood-starring Spaghetti Western ‘Hang ‘Em High’, the Brazilian movie masterpiece ‘Black Orpheus’ and more.
