Legends Of Ska

February 4, 2009

The Legends Of Ska website has upgraded its film trailer page. Click the link for great hi-def mini-docs on Stranger Cole, Patsy Todd, and the Singers and Players from the Legends Of Ska concerts (which also featured Alton Ellis, Derrick Morgan, Prince Buster, Derrick Harriott, Lord Creator, Owen Gray, and in the words of King Stitt, “a host of others”). (You’ll need QuickTime Player to view – a free download if you don’t already have it.)
