ska madness 2



Released: 16th Jan 2012


rhoda dakar (the special aka & bodysnatchers) takes us further into the world of 2-tone with tracks from desmond dekker, toots & the maytals, jimmy cliff, upsetters & more.

this compilation is packed with the artists & killer cuts which influenced the original 2-tone bands,  were favourites on the tour buses during the various 2-tone package tours & were played at gigs before & between bands. amongst the rarities it boasts 7 top 10 uk chart hits & takes in ska, rocksteady & more, from the timeless qualities of ‘israelites’ & ‘young gifted & black’ to tracks wholly evocative of their time such as symarip’s ‘skinhead girl’.
