Sunday Morning Music: Early Ska Selections
Many years later, these songs have been re-recorded. A good example is "The Tide is High" by John Holt.
Or 1963's Simmer Down by the Wailing Wailers. Truth be told, I prefer the early band over the later Bob Marley work.
Here's my all time fave by the Wailing Wailers - an excellent take on "Do You Love Me"
There is also another offshoot of early ska called Rocksteady. I have an insane Rocksteady list on iTunes if you ever want to check it out. Do I get a red cent out of it? Nah. iTunes doesn't need to pay me in order to make money. Evil geniuses...
