Format: Audio CD
OK, OK there have been many ska/2 tone compilations over the years, so what makes this one any better than the rest? What this particular offering does well is juxtapose the 2 tone era with the "original" ska artists amongst whom I find a few I wasn't familiar such as Justin Hands. What this album has done is to show me that there is a lot more to ska than the well known tracks most of us are familiar with and I am certainly looking forward to educating myself to see what I have been missing.

Of course if you are just after a good time, with tunes that demand at the least a toe tap or two if not embarrassing Dad dancing, then this is the stuff. You may well already have the vast majority of these tracks in your collection already but if you don't then this is a must buy.

Certainly the best album of its sort to date. 80s fans will be very happy with the selection that includes Madness, The Specials, The Beat, Bad Manners, The Selector Etc Etc.

Of course the roots of this music goes many years earlier and include Desmond Dekker, Millie(remenber her?) Dandy Livingstone Etc Etc.

If this is your kind of music then this is a must have for you,

This is a very good album. There are some excellent modern ska records by Madness, the Specials, the Beat, Bad Manners
etc. There are some great ska oldies such as Double Barrel and Liquidator. Many of the other Jamaican records are also good.
There are 3 CDs, so it is great value for money. A few more good records and I would have given it five stars.

Great Ska collection cannot complain... Well I can a little but it's minor things. It would have been nice to have a booklet inside about Ska history. Plus song great Ska songs I would have added instead of a couple of weaker ones in this compilation but truly cannot mark down for that, it is a fantastic group of songs 9.99999999999/10
