Radiation Roots presents a reissue of Laurel Aitken's The Fantastic Laurel Aitken, originally released in 1972. This remastered and expanded edition of the hyper-rare early '70s release from the "Godfather Of Ska" showcases Aitken's musical prowess. By 1970, Laurel Aitken had solidified his position as the "Father of British Reggae," dominating the country's Jamaican music scene since the early '60s. However, seeking to expand his reach beyond domestic success, he opted to license his next album to companies in Europe and North America.


Originally released on the Belgian label Hebra 42 years ago, this album has not been reissued until now, making it a must-have for ska enthusiasts. The vinyl reissue includes four bonus tracks, making it a comprehensive collection of '70s ska classics.
