JAMES BOND * ROLAND ALPHONSO * ISLAND 259 * UK
A Coxsone release Jamaica, this has the same tune as the title track of the film Dr. No, but on a Ska rhythm. Some of the action in the film, the first of the 'James Bond' genre, takes place in Jamaica. Ian Fleming, the author of the James Bond stories, was fond of, and familiar with, the Island, and wrote a book about it.
