If you like early Ska with rough production then you'll like this.
For me, I am a late comer to Ska after the updated version developed by bands like Madness, the specials, Selector and so on. That's why, to my ears, a lot of this stuff is just too early, too badly produced.
The same comments apply to the dub tracks - again, all too early with nowhere near the bass lines I was hoping for.
I prefer later reggae, dub, ska or the earlier stuff that was better produced. This double CD is of it's time and unless you are into (as the cover says, roots)it is too dated. Ignore 4 star rating - you cannot change it once given and I thought I was reviewing another CD.
Two stars only then!
