"Holding On," a previously unreleased Skatalites track, opens this roundup of mostly East coast-based young ska-meisters and lends elder statesman gravity and history to their giddy, "skamatic" bounce. But before the American bloods take over, Jamaican ska supergroup The Coyabalites, featuring 6-string god Ernie Ranglin with Vin Gordon, Glen Dacosta, and David Madden on horns, turn in a jubiliant "My Boy Lollipop," with Judy Gordon reprising Millie Small's vocals on the 1961 ditty that became Jamaica's first international hit. Two formidable all-girl groups, Brave new Girl and Wicked Wicked Pepperseed, are included. Lauren Stauber's low-end vocals in "The Creator Has a Master Plan" are compelling and Britt Savage does an excellent revamp of the Bad Brain's "Sailin' On." --Elena Oumano

"This is one of my favoraties and I own a lot of Ska. It is better then volume one with hard to find tracks by Orange Street, Brave New Girl and Wicked Wicked Pepperseed. "She Don't Drink White Wine" sold me on Orange Street instantly resulting in my buying several other CD's which feature them, including New Your Beat: Breaking and Entering 2."
