More Info:

Reggae legend, Leonard Dillon, known as the Ethiopian, was the founder of one of Jamaica's premier ska, rocksteady, and early reggae sensations The Ethiopians, but got his start under the name Jack Sparrow. His early solo Jack Sparrow single efforts, some backed by The Wailers, didn't yield any hits and prompted him to form a group, The Ethiopians, where he found his first success. So popular was their track "Train To Skaville," that The Ethiopians were able to tour beyond Jamaica and they headed to the U.K. in 1968. "Train To Skaville" sold over 50,000 copies in Jamaica and made a slight appearance on the U.K. charts where it left a lasting impression. So much so, it was later covered by The Selector during the ska revival during the early '80s.
