Omnivore Recordings is proud to announce the acquisition of Nighthawk Records and Blackheart Music Publishing. Omnivore’s reissue of the Nighthawk catalog begins with an album that until now has remained unreleased. 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.
