Description

Described as the only ska compilation album you'll need, this SKA For Life CD has been curated for the serious music fanatic. Spanning everything from original '60s and '70s Jamaican artists to second generation hit bands (we're talking Madness and The Specials, of course), it doubles up as a superb introduction to the genre.

Alongside pure ska, you'll also find roots reggae offerings in the form of Steel Pulse and the wonderful pioneer of toasting, U-Roy. So, no matter if you're loyal to the original Jamaican scene or edge towards the 2 Tone revival in '70s Britain, there'll be something for every listener to appreciate.
