5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Ska 21 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Just received this mixture of 60s (original) and 70s Ska. It's fantastic to hear artists like Lord Tanamo, the Maytals and Desmond Dekker for the first time since the early '70s. There's a good mixture on all three CDs. Five stars fo the Ska nostalgist, probably not so high for the purist

4.0 out of 5 stars SKA-TASTIC 24 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a top ska collection, it contains plenty of classics including a few from the godfathers of SKA music, The Specials. Defenite stand out tracks are Rat Race, Rudy, a message to you and Ghosttown.
Its cheap and you get over 50 tracks to chose from, there has to be some you like in that lot!
