"If you're a ska fan and you don't have this album, you're not a ska fan. This is one of the best CDs I've ever heard. It's just soo good!!! It deserves 12 stars, one for each song!! Every track is nothing short of orgasmicly good. My favorites are McCookin', Wait 'Til Later, Sad Taco (Doesn't Matter), Patchwork Girl, Untitled, Cider Song...damn, I love all of 'em!! This band was one of the great local ska bands in CT ever. Their tone quality and blending of horns makes them god-like. And Roger's voice is one-of-a-kind. I just wished that some of the awesome tunes on their original demo tape (I forgot their titles) were on this CD. And of course their break-up saddened many ska fans in the CT/NY area. They were always rockin the house. We'll miss them. Buy this one--you won't regret it!!!"
Lucky enough to find it? Buy it

"It was only through the blessing of I found this particular band. I was spending hours with a case of Listmania when I found a beginners guide to ska with this band among the many listed. I was fortunate enough to find it at my local record store for like $5 so I snatched it up.

This album is the ska I like. Very mellow and cool, but still gets you moving. I'm no ska expert by any means, but I prefer this to the louder ska-punk. Try if you like the Mad Caddies or want a contrast to bands like the Voodoo Glow Skulls.

I was very sad to learn that 6 years prior to me finding out about them, they've apparantly broken up and moved on. At least I got my copy."
CT MOD Ska Strong Full Length Release

"At one point CT and most of New England was caught up in the Third Wave of Ska, bands were a dime a dozen. But JTB had something different, something extra. Rather then modeling themselves after a silly version of the Specials they dug deeper for their influences, The Skatalitles, Prince Buster, Judge Dread et al. to create an original style that stood above the others. After building a huge following in New England, and the release of a fantastic demo, 7" and comp tracks, this pleasant full length surfaced through a Moon off shoot. A nice collection of ska/reaggae tunes with a modern touch. Superior song writing and fantastic musicianship. A true gem!"
