We gave it a B

Some great finds here, including ”Santa Claus Is Skaing to Town” by the Granville Williams Orchestra and some primo ’60s-70s Jamaican soul by Alton Ellis, the Kingstonians, and the Ethiopians. There’s also a forgettable latter-day Lee Perry exercise and some lesser-known modern throwaways. Source your mix tape from Natty and Nice: A Reggae Christmas, A Yard Style Christmas, and Reggae Christmas From Studio One, and you’ll be skanking big time. B
