Day 52 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Wailers - Sound The Trumpet

Keeping up the mood with some more ska!  The 52nd track in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge is by the Wailers; Bob, Peter and Bunny and it is a scorcher!  "Sound The Trumpet" AKA "Christmas Is Here" was recorded at Studio One with the immortal Skatalites doing the backing and released in December of 1964 on Coxsone Dodd's Muzik City label.  This is definitely one of those great Jamaican tunes that can easily transcend anyone's self-imposed genre limitations on Christmas music, it has been in my playlist for over 20 years!  Guaranteed to get your feet moving!
