4.0 out of 5 stars You Said It! 19 Nov 2012
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A very good compilation of `Ska' that comes with a descent 12 page booklet that has good liner notes but no pics or label scans. Overall the sound quality is very good (but don't expect pristine sounds). There's a good mix of tracks, a nice blend of Classics, familiar tracks and new to cd (17 tracks making their cd debut).

Cd 1. 1962 - 1964 (55.15mins). Opens with one of the greatest Ska records - Derrick Morgan's retort to Prince Buster `Blazing Fire' (play it loud). If by stark contrast the next track is the sweet `When I call your name' by Stranger Cole & Patsy. There are many great tracks on here and some of them are the cd debutants - `Suzie' by Top Grant, the great sounding `Luck will come my way' by Winston Samuels and my favourite new track to my ears `I shall wear a crown' by The Richard Brothers. Overall 8/10.

Cd 2. 1964 - 1967 (52.28mins). Opens well with Jackie Edwards version of 'Sea cruise' (what a great artist), `Mount Zion' by Desmond Dekker, `I'm in the mood' by Lord Tanamo is also a familiar classic. Alton Ellis, Winston Samuels add some more vocal class, a few instrumentals add a different edge - `Contact' by Roy Richards being the best. Overall not as strong as disc 1. One or two tracks are a little muffled (to be expected) 6/10.

Overall, a great value for money 2 disc set. Dive in and take the plunge, there's lots of goodies to discover. Well done Trojan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forty Classic Ska tracks 14 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great album of classic Ska and Rock Steady of the eraly-mid 1960s, many of which have not been released before. Very clean recordings with a full vibrant sound, they hardly sound dated at all. The accompanying booklet describes the surge of interest in Jamaican Ska music among British youth in the early 1960s, who at the time called it Blue Beat. Written by an early modernist who witnessed it first hand it recounts the Ska-focused club-life at the Flamingo, the Roaring Twenties, and the Scene Club in London’s West End, and highlights the interaction between Black and White teenagers, the former being the son’s and daughters of the initial wave of Jamaican immigrants. High energy dance music, not for the faint hearted

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Early Ska. 24 Dec 2012
By G. Hall
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A very reasonaby priced cd set from Trojan, the masters of reggae. Good to hear some tracks that are new to me, but some of the lyrics are a bit on the risque side, or is it my overactive imagination!. As usual with Trojan, it contains some very informative notes in the booklet. I see that there are more sets in the series, I'll probably be ordering some of those too.
