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.

I must admit that I approached this purchase with some caution and was initially attracted by the fact that it was a collaboration by Lee Thompson, yee of Madness saxophone fame.

The album name was intriguing and the collaboration name equally so.

HOWEVER, I've not stopped listening to it since I bought it, EXCELLENT and exactly what you'd imagine a 'ska orchestra' to be.

If you like reggae and ska then you'll love this album.

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.

In the same vein as "Bite The Bullet", and no disgrace. Personally loved the sound back in the day, thrilled when Madness and the 2-Tone stable mates reinvigorated it in the late seventies, and is still much appreciated today. Nice one, Lee Thompson and thanks.

I bought this on vinyl and would highly recommend it. I had already bought You Lucky People CD single and Fu Manchu on promo cd single and 7" so knew exactly what to expect. This is a great tribute to the original artists. This is what the Dangermen Sessions LP should have sounded like. I cannot wait for the follow up from LTSO. A great ska covers album - with a great picture cover.

This is a banging vinyl record. The quality of the pressing is good. The treble is crisp, the bass is full on. Crank it up!

Fantastic sounds, quite varied in terms of ska, reggae, two tone. Little bit of blues mixed in occasionally. Fabulous album, recommend
