5.0 out of 5 stars Summer Is Finally Here
The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra Give Us Ska in a traditional sense and boy is it hot from the current Single Fu Man chu with Bitty Mclean to the Joy of Mission impossible and Bangarang its a great tribute to the classic sound of ska from the 60's and 70's and get ready to dance.

3.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING
Became interested in the album after their appearance with Jools Holland which gave me the hope that they could revive British ska from the days of two tone.
The album commences with real promise but just seems to drift into what appears more of a tribute act rather the real macoy having said that still make a good album for a summer party to bounce around the barbie

5.0 out of 5 stars old ska made new, 3 Jun. 2013

This review is from: The Benevolence Of Sister Mary Ignatius (Audio CD)
Kix ( Lee Thompson ) and his band of merry men, recently played at the Band on the wall in Manchester and did not get a good review off some punters, which must have been more to do with night itself, because once I had listened to this debut cd I wanted more and still do. one thing I am going to do, is post a message on the madness website in chrissy boys cupboard, and demand more, although Chrissy may have visions of the demise of madness and the rise of Lee Thompson and his orchestra, But I could live with both. One down side to it, is that there are only 12 top tracks on it and once listened to, you will want more, more and more. This is a deffo must have for all ska/reggae fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to make you smile & extremly Happy., 3 Jun. 2013
This review is from: The Benevolence Of Sister Mary Ignatius (Audio CD)
Was lucky enough to see LTSO last week & be able to purchase CD before release date. This CD is one to buy, it is wonderfull & full of great tunes with superb musicians & the added extra of Bitty Mclean.
And if they tour again do not miss it a truly wonderfull gig.

3.0 out of 5 stars A LABOUR OF LOVE BUT..., 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There`s no doubt that Lee and his mates are good blokes and love their ska - and there are a few good tracks - but, sadly, it just doesn`t have the snap, crackle and loose groove of the best original ska tunes. This is clearly a labour of love and they`re a much better live band than this album would suggest.
