Ska comments

Thanks for the comments from Ken Major and ChrisB on the Origins of Ska. Hope you keep reading!. I guess I knew Ska as Blue Beat at the time (from the label) but according to Maureen Cleave it was Chris Blackwell (founder of Island Records) who called it Ska. He lived in Jamaica before making his fortune in the UK. Where he got the name from I don't know.
