" Cos the originals are still the greatest"
It's such a shame that Ska ( progressing to 2 Tone) was hijacked by the Nazis at an early stage in the UK. It then became Rock Steady and morphed into mainstream Reggae, which was only saved by The Lord Bob Marley and others, such as Burning Spear.

This thread might herald a revival of real Ska, who knows?

Very commercial but superb in my book
Specials .......... Do Nothing
Rupee Edwards...Eyrie Feelings (gollocks to the spell thingy)
Lena Zavaroni..... Ma he's making eyes at me
Barry Biggs ........ Side show
Selector..............On my radio

No one's mentioned Toots and the Maytals! Broadway Jungle, 54-46 Was My Number and their version of Louie Louie were all classics!
Reggae Got Soul - Toots & The Maytals.
Not strictly Ska, I know, but the most awesome reggae track ever IMHO & would feature on my playlist every time.
Good drills on Israelites too. Desmond Dekker was the guv'nor, remember that track being released in the 60s - when music was quality & nothing like the poo that gets into the charts now :)
