From The Duff Guide to Ska: I don't know why it was so hard to obtain (I finally ordered it directly from VP Records after two failed attempts elsewhere), but "The Jackie Mittoo Showcase EP" (Black vinyl picture sleeve single, 17 North Parade/VP Records, 2018) was completely worth the wait and effort. Essentially, this four-track release presents some of the greatest tracks off last year's excellent double-CD "Striker Showcase." These 1977-1978 cuts are prime, moody rocksteady/reggae Mittoo material (with his phenomenal soulful/jazzy Hammond keyboard lines floating above it all) from three essential albums co-produced by Bunny "Striker" Lee: "Disco Jack" and "Brain Mark" are off "Hot Blood"; "Earthquake" is from "In Cold Blood"; while "Drum Song" is on the original "Showcase" album. One can't have enough Jackie Mittoo in their collection.
