More Rocksteady than Ska,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ska Anthems (Audio CD)
'Ska Anthems' is the title of this 3 CD boxset but there's actually very little ska tunes on it. As most of the tracks are rocksteady tunes from 1966-68, a few later reggae tunes and even some DJ cuts with U-Roy featuring on all 3 discs.
That aside it's a great collection of Jamaican sounds, comes in a nice tin box and at a very decent price. The only problem I have with it (apart from the title) is the Bad Manners track right in the middle of disc 1. Now 'Sally Brown' isn't a bad song although I prefer the Laurel Aitken original but on this collection it just sticks out like a sore thumb!
