Ska - For ska's sake
Ska - For ska's sake - Various Artists 1989
It's hard to express the effect this album had on me. This represents the state of European ska 10 years after 2-tone.
Some of this is so cheesy and some of this is brilliant. But for the teenage me it was a musical salvation and I was too young to decifer the difference. "Another Town" by Mr. Review remains one of my favorite songs of all time. "Skadansk" by Mark Foggo's Skasters is SO cheeseball that I couldn't handle it. But today I celebrate you, Mark! I Celebrate you all!
I hope you enjoy...this is my youth.
