Just a quick post to let you loyal followers of the island sound that the Straits Sound System will be back with another session early in the new year!

That’s of course in addition to stuff by old favourites such as Burning Spear, The Wailers, The Maytones, Prince Buster, Roland Alphonso, Baba Brooks, Scientist, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, The Mad Professor, Gregory Isaacs, Horace Andy and all your other favourites.
