Monday's mp3: James Bond in Ska

Gonna be a quick post today, 'cause it's snowing outside and I want to go play. It's a Bond doubleshot. Following last week's Gypsy brass cover of the Bond theme, I've been digging the variety of tracks on this great new release, from the Bond theme to "Ball of Fire." This is classic stuff, timeless and timely since the Skatalites are on tour, hitting Seattle's Studio Seven this Friday (see calendar).

[mp3] Skatalites: "James Bond Theme"
from the album In Orbit Vol. 1 (Xaymaca Records)
band site: skatalites.com

For more ska and reggae -- including some from unexpected places -- tune in to Spin The Globe's webstream this Friday 10am-noon (Pacific).

I caught this song about five years ago up at the Mangy Mouse in Jackson Hole while on a ski trip. Great song, bar, and skiing. Thanks!
