Offered for sale is a rare red vinyl pressing of the 1964 Jamaican LP Dance the Ska by Byron Lee and the Dragonaires.

Colored vinyl pressings are quite rare; almost all copies were pressed on black vinyl.

About this copy:  This copy of Dance the Ska is an original 1964 mono pressing on the Jamaican BMN label.

The cover is VG, with general wear and a repaired 3″ seam split on the bottom edge.

The red vinyl disc is VG+, it’s clearly been well cared for, but has a couple of stray marks that should be inaudible.

A nice copy of a rare ska LP and the back cover includes instructions for how to dance the ska!

Background: Released in 1964, Dance the Ska was likely the second LP by Byron Lee, who recorded more than 70 albums in a career that stretched from the early 1960s to 2010.

The LP led to Lee getting recording contracts from major labels in both the U.S. and Europe.

You can listen to a track from the album, “Ska Dee Wah,” here:
