Tommy McCook, Rolando Alphonso, Johnny Moore, Lester Sterling, Don Drummond, Lloyd Knibb, Lloyd Brevett, Jerry Haynes, and Jackie Mittoo began working together in 1963 and formed The Ska-talites in May 1964. They recorded their first LP at [l=Studio One] in Kingston, "Ska Authentic". In August 1965 The Skatalites play their last show before split up due to Don Drummond' murdering his girlfriend. The break-up results in the formation of two supergroups, Rolando Alphonso & The [a=Soul Vendors] and [a=Tommy McCook & The Supersonics]. The group turn to play again in a reunon in 1983.
