Description : Ska bands like The Specials, Madness, The Beat, The Selector and Bad Manners all carried horns, the music was fun and live these bands were a great night out. After buying all the ska I could from these above bands I started looking back to the 60's ska bands Prince Buster, The Skatalites and Jimmy Cliff to name a few. So I felt why not try to capture that flavour and fun for all to enjoy. If you have any constructive comments on any aspect of this song please feel free to express them. I have decided from here on in I'm trying to reach perfection for each song/track. I hope you enjoy the first of few ska songs I will be loading over the next week. I thank you all in advance for taking the time to listen. All instruments and vocals Slap J, drums and percussion Sonic foundry. Cheers Slap...

    Loved it! Hoorah. takes me back to my teen youth. Anyhow I'm no expert but I think if you punctuate your words more like the greats, I'll feel more in the era. You know what I'm saying? Spit the words into the mic. Actually I think(no criticism intended) that you should sing 1 octave lower. well maybe, I loved it anyway. excellent.

    Well I'm dropping in to taste the skank ....and it's mighty fine....I think this is a marvellous example of where an Artist has actually chosen to go back to one of his periods and revisit the experience..the results are spectacular to say the least...it's as if Picasso decided to plunge again into his wonderful 'Blue' era...and share his accumulated experiences yet again but with a manifestly superior technique and intent...Not only does this music represent a watershed of popular performance based bands but also an indicator as to how consummate your grip on the whole musical experience has become....Your work has all the hallmarks from the ground up.....It's Art....cheers dave :)

Description : Sincere apologies for this nonsense. Started out as a home school project with the kids but they refused to sing or write lyrics so had to use bastardised nursery rhymes.

Description : THIS IS A BRAND NEW MIX OF THIS SKA NUMBER
this is old school British Ska, Madness, The English Beat, The Selecters and my favorite The Specials, for the younger crowd these names might not mean a thing but their influence is all over the place, all loops no processing on the mix and the magic of SlapJohnson on harmonica, his loops are priceless to me thanks Slap.

Description : This is the final track from the first Global Ska Network album. I started this album in Feb thinking I could do all the tracks in time to finish the RPM challenge. I was wrong, but I didn't want to rush what I had started and compromise quality. This track is about the general can't be bothered culture we are facing. You know the kind of people I'm talking about! They want everything for nothing,and expect everything to be handed to them on a plate. They also would rather do dirty deeds to (lie,cheat ect) Than walk the right path.. Verse..How many more times,how many more lies spat at our faces.you wheel and deal,cheat and steal won't win the races.I turn my back,try to protect the love that's left,you want that too, the greed you show despises you.Chorus.You'll always learn the hard way, you have to have the last say,stop living day to day, the future's what you make it,get out there and take it.. 10 piece horn section, including a clarinet high up to add a sparkle. All instruments and vocals Slap, drums by Sonic foundry. Again I'm looking for constructive comments towards the arrangement and mix/production. This track has 24 tracks, so if you feel a tweak is needed please say. I thank you all in advance for taking the time to listen and review... Cheers Slap...
