New Laurel Aitken Re-Issues

Cherry Red Records out of the UK has reissued two Laurel Aitken albums, “Ska With Laurel” and “Says Fire” with loads of bonus tracks on each. As a HUGE fan of “El Padrino” The Godfather I am always excited when there is new releases and it’s been some time since there was. I’ll be picking these up ASAP.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
