Classic 1962 ska video

I couldn't resist putting up this 1962 video of ska at Kingston's uptown Club Sombrero with backing band Byron Lee and the Dragonaires, and a hard-skanking cast of hundreds.

Incidentally, I peeped this video at the website of London-based DJ Hugo Mendes, who recently compiled and put out this killer compilation CD called "Tumbélé!" with biguine, afro & latin music from the Guadeloupe and Martinique c. 1963-74 which has had me pretty much hard-skanking around the apto. the last few days myself.
