This CD issued in 2001 as a tribute to Roland Alphonso by Clement Dodd on Studio One. Unusual selection of tracks most not available on CD. Each track filled with his playing of the saxophone and on "Jazz Steady "on the flute. Brief notes, which is rare to have any on Studio One release. If I had to pick an outstanding track it would be "Nimble Foot" a different take to the version on Bonanza Ska (Heartbeat) fantastic sax and Don Drummond on trombone as a bonus. Great mix of Ska/Rock Steady /Reggae from a master musician. A must for all collectors of Skatalite music and Ska/Reggae fans alike. Does not seem to be as readily available in the record shop's/Net as it should be. Issued on Studio One CD - 1127 (USA).
