Jamaican foundation ska legend CHARLEY ORGANAIRE is a regular fixture on the Chicago scene! THE harmonica sound on thousands of early ska sessions at Studio One, Treasure Isle, etc – he was also an accomplished singer / band leader / arranger / label owner who released singles in the 60s on his own ORGANAIRES imprint. He built a lasting relationship with The Prizefighters, resulting in six tracks being recorded together in the Spring of 2014.
This first single sees two of CHARLEY’s vocal classics from the 60s get a new lease on life – “TROUBLES” and “ELUSIVE BABY” (a duet with Whitney) never sounded finer, two scorching ska tunes recorded with vintage equipment and old timey sass. It’s top notch all the way from start to finish. 1964 all over again.
