Product Description

Buster Bloodvessel, one of the biggest characters in Ska, has stayed loyal to the music and has become as influential as he is entertaining. This CD captures the bands best recordings from his late great Blue Beat Records label, including the best tracks from the "Return Of The Ugly" and "Eat The Beat" albums. Also included are the Blue Beat re-workings of Bad Manners biggest hits "Lip Up Fatty" (UK No.15 in 1980) and "Special Brew" (UK No.3 in 1980) which is currently being used for the Cadburys TV advertising campaign for their chocolate biscuit Jestive.

There are also four excellent quality live recordings including versions of the hits "Samson And Delilah" (UK No.58 in 1982), "Lorraine" (UK No.21 in 1980), and "Can Can" (UK No.3 in 1981) which is also being used for a TV advert for a new truck! Essential Ska!

Buster at his best 29 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was rummaging through my collection of LP'S the other day and found this piece of gold.
Bad Manners truly at their best, who could ever forget the Fatman strutting across the stage poking that big fat tongue out at every one who'd care too look.
Brought back a lot of happy memories.
I'd advise everyone to go out and buy a copy, let's get SKA back in the charts again, let's show the youngsters exactly what good music was all about and not push button techno of today.

I have had this record in vinyl for twenty years or more. It is brilliant. Now,finally it is available on CD- buy it.

What @**hole decided that Bad Manners should be mixed?? There is all kinds of wrong here; bits of 2 or 3 songs pieced together, things being 'enhanced' with dubs & repeats, arcade game noises(!). Good god, it's horrendous. Save your money.
Anyone out there with an album suggestion that avoids the pitfalls found here?
