"This album serves as quite possibly the best and most accessable ska compilation available. It progresses chronologically from Laurel Aitken's 1959 hit "Boogie in my Bones" through the formative years of early ska, through Millie Small's 1964 smash "My Boy Lollipop." Along the way, it covers its bases with cuts from undeniably the world's greatest trombonist, Skatalite Don Drummond, as well as early tracks from Toots Hibbert, Jimmy Cliff, and Bob Marley. Two years ago, after spending a year listening to third wave ska, I picked up this album and haven't looked back since. It's full of amazing classics such as "Carry, Go Bring, Come" and a couple of sweet duets "We'll Meet" and the unbeatable "Housewife's Choice." This album is perfect for those just learning to skank, those fed up with ska-core, or anyone looking to supplement their reggae collection with some of the earliest classics. It's a great survey of the first few years of early Jamaican music."
