best ska + rocksteady trax: your input plaese
I made a comp cd a while back, basically going for the best ska and rocksteady songs i had access to at the time. since it all had to fit on one cd (and not overly freak out the squares at some family functions), its heavily skewed towards the "famous" tracks, like the ones that were later covered in the late 70s etc. What i want to know is: if you could extend this list past #27 (and past the "famous" stuff), what would you put on it? Im basically talking 1960-1970 JA material, and the only other critera is "really really good - no second rate stuff". What are your *essential* ska+rocksteady tracks?so heres the comp of 27:1. Dandy Livingstone ???Rudy, A Message To You???2. The Maytals ???Monkey Man???3. Prince Buster All Stars ???Judge Dread???4. Prince Buster All Stars ???Madness???5.
