MARLEY tribute 7″ singles featuring THE SKATALITES, CHARLEY ORGANAIRE w/AKASHA, THE CROMBIES, EQUATORS, and more!

The wait is over! The SPECIALIZED Teenage Cancer Trust folks in the UK just released their 4xCD tribute to BOB MARLEY & THE WAILERS, and our vinyl has JUST arrived!  We think these 4 song 7″ vinyl EPs are absolutely brilliant!! One single is on a Jamaican ska tip, while the other has more of a 2-TONE 80’s flair! Limited edition of 400 each. FYI: these will be shooting across the pond and will arrive in the UK next week where they will be available on the Specialized website!

JUMPTCT09 : Akasha w/ Charley Organaire “One Cup Of Coffee”  /  The Skatalites feat Doreen Shaffer “Nice Time”, Pressure Tenants “Judge Not” /  Calypso Joe “Stir It Up”
JUMPTCT10: The Crombies “Hooligans” / The Equators “Pimper’s Paradise”
 The Skapones (UK) “Midnight Ravers” / Annabella Lwin (of Bow Wow Wow) “Cheer Up”
