5.0 out of 5 stars Good Starter 5 Nov 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
A very good mix of early to mid sixties Ska.A few from the "Blue Beat" label too.Beautiful Garden was the first Ska record I heard.I think I was pre -teens and it gripped me for good and has not let me go since.I fully recommend this album.Love It.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's Well Worth Getting 8 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
An excellent place to start with ska if you're new to the Trojan compilations. If you've got the many older three-disc boxes and the 2010 two-disc sets then yes there is indeed a lot of duplication, although the mastering is noticeably cleaner here than on the pre-2010 stuff. There are a few less common tunes which are worth the modest price of this release alone; also alternative versions of 'King of Kings' (lovely, with some great sound effects) and 'Sammy Dead' to the previous Trojan releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but readily available 24 Dec 2011
By Mailian
Format:Audio CD
These 40 tracks of the best known mainly vocal ska tracks is a good compilation for the newcomer and at a great price.
Ska lovers have probably 90% of these songs on other compilations and the great ska instrumentals are too few to rank this more than 4 stars.
