"These are not all the original recordings! Some of them are recorded "live"" If you are looking for the great original versions, look elsewhere! I am always slightly bothered when I buy an album expecting one thing and get another. All that said...this is not a BAD album...as a matter of fact I will keep it. And I must say it's good to hear this band still together. But PLEASE...if an artist puts out a "Best of" album, it should have the ORIGINAL songs on it or else it should state that it has "NEW RECORDINGS"."
Excellent Album for those who like Ska and Reggae

"I recently discovered the Selecter for the first time, and have since bought the album. The Selecter combines Reggae with Brit Ska and infectiously catchy lyrics. The first time I heard "On My Radio" I became a great fan. I highly reccomend it to anyone who likes Reggae, Rocksteady, Ska, Ragga, or the like. The more you listen to it, the more you will love it. If you love the Specials then you can't fail with this.This album isn't like any other. You may not love it the first time you hear it, but it will GROW ON YOU... My brother didn't like it when he first heard it, but since has recanted.In a beat: It combines the best of Jamaica and the U.K. on a top-notch album."
