Skylarking is the debut studio album by Horace Andy. It was released on Studio One in 1972. Not to be confused with his best album, also titled Skylarking, released in 1996. In 2012, Skylarking was placed at number 16 on the "Top 50 Reggae Albums" list, which was compiled by Jamaican disc jockey Clinton Lindsay and his colleague Marlon Burrell in commemoration of Jamaica's 50th anniversary as an independent nation. In 2014, Mojo placed it at number 43 on its list of the "50 Greatest Reggae Albums"
While Skylarking is really the second Horace Andy album by this name, the 1997 release is actually a compilation of tracks from throughout his formidable career, put together for release on Melankolic (the label run by British trip-hop trio Massive Attack). Skylarking stretches from 1970 Studio One cuts such as "Fever" and "Every Tongue Shall Tell" to some of his Massive Attack highlights, like the eerie pulse and creep of "One Love" and "Spying Glass," which actually appears in two versions

The album barely cracks a half-hour, but in that short time-frame, it manages a lot. The title track would become Andy’s breakthrough hit, and aside from his intermittent stints in Massive Attack, is the song he is most associated with. The term refers to the idleness and hooliganism that plagues the disaffected youths mired in slums and shantytowns, rooted in the titular bird’s tendency for playfulness that at times defies adaption and turns to risk. But the complex set of history and geography that stand behind "Skylarking" isn’t the only thing that makes Horace Andy such an original or formative presence music. Today, reggae has mostly been relegated to a platitude, the fare of stoners or innocuous background music at get-togethers. Yet for all its surface placidity, these songs are ingeniously alive, opening up in your earphones and prickling your knees into a sway.
