"This collection of late sixties ska and reggae features sides recorded in the UK. The best cuts are the hard-to-find "Limbo Girl" by the Invaders and "Hippy Ska" by the Rude Boys. Their are some other good cuts, but a few tracks are pale attempts to recapture past ska triumphs (The Pyramids "Shotgun" does not compare to the Wailers' "Ska Jerk" and the included version of "Phoenix City" is not up to the Skatalites original). However, because it includes some obscure gems, it is definitely worth owning. If you love original ska, you should have this in your collection. I'm the Big Oh... oh oh OH!"
