As a tribute to the late Lloyd Brevett, who died earlier today, today's 'Song For Today' is one of the ska classics that were blessed by his bass playing. RIP Lloyd. "The Skatalites are a ska band from Jamaica. They played initially between 1963 and 1965, and recorded many of their best known songs in the period, including 'Guns of Navarone'. They also played on records by Prince Buster and backed many other Jamaican artists who recorded during that period. They reformed in 1983 and have played together ever since..."
