The best ska album on emusic

SRJ

WOW! If you like traditional ska and the Skatalites, this is easily the best deal on emusic. The first half of this disc is the Skatalites legendary (and best) album, Ska-Boo-Da-Ba, featuring many of Don Drummond's all-time best songs. The rest contains more choice cuts produced by Justin Yap for Top Deck Records, including absolutely amazing Roland Alphonso compositions. This is SKA!
