Each year we release a four-disc boxset album that pays tribute to an iconic band, record label or style. Since 2012 we’ve released ten albums for our tribute series. Each year the tribute series picks a new theme and invites bands from across the globe to contribute. Past themes have included The Specials, The Beat, Madness, The Clash, Bob Marley, The Jam, Trojan Records, Two Tone Records, Glam Rock and most recently celebrated our 10th anniversary with Viva – The Freedom Songs. These albums are 4-disc CD Boxsets containing between 65 to 70 exclusive cover versions.

This year we delighted to have Jon Reed as a guest curator to work alongside the albums producer Paul Ayriss. Once again Dave ‘Yorkie’ Moran has supplied his excellent artistic design talents.

Ska and swing have enjoyed a close relationship ever since Jamaica opened its first recording studios. They were the toast of Hollywood, a group of actors who came together at the Los Angeles home of silver-screen stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. But their effect on the popular culture would make them international stars. The Rat Pack was a supergroup of entertainment and comedy who often appeared together in concerts, on TV or in movies. They sang, they told jokes, they did comedy sketches — most of all, they had a blast. The official roster was Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin, and of course, Frank Sinatra. All five stars appeared in Ocean’s Eleven, which was filmed in Las Vegas, and frequently performed together at The Sands,
also in Las Vegas. Our Way The Rat Pack Collection will be a collection of the music popularised by The Rat Pack and includes many of the Jazz standards of the times. It will include material by other performers who were frequent guests at The Sands Club including Nat King Cole, Judy Garland, Buddy Greco, Shirley MacLaine, Tony Bennett, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Doris Day, Dean Martin, Frankie Laine, Lena Horne, Tony Bennett, Vic Damone, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, Jack Jones, Rita Reys, Steve Lawrence, Liza Minnelli and Cleo Laine.
