At last an official CD release for this classic debut l.p from 2-Tone's finest The Selecter. A somewhat more pleasing debut than there label mates The Specials, brilliantly combining the vocal talents of Pauline Black and 'Gaps'Hendrickson, the killer guitars of Neol Davies and Compton Amanor, Desmond Brown's funky Hammond organ and the sturdy rhythm section of the two Charleys, Anderson (bass) and Bembridge (drums). The album contains the top 30 hits 'Three Minute Hero'and 'Missing Words'along with 'The Selecter'(flipside of The Specials''Gangsters')and 'On My Radio' and the original single version of 'Too Much Pressure'as bonus tracks. An excellent blend of classic ska and reggae covers ('Everyday', 'Carry Go Bring Come', 'James Bond') and superb original material ('Black and Blue', 'Out On the Streets', 'Street Feeling'). A must for SKA fans everywhere as is their second lp 'Celebrate The Bullet'. Thank you Captain Mod for releasing these 2 lost classics on CD at long last - well worth the wait!!
