Ultra Rare Ska vol.1 - The Lost European Ska of the 2Tone Era (link updated on November 17, 2008)

Photobucket

This is a great comp that features 20 ska rarities but is quite a rarity itself. I can find very little info about it anywhere. Word around the campfire is that there were only 500 copies of this cd made. Is that true? I don't know. You tell me.

I have posted a few of these songs on Tone and Wave previously but they sound much better on here than my vinyl rips do. The version of Skavengers' "Party Girls" sounds great compared to the one I posted though the whole 7" is still available in it's authentic vinyl-crackling glory HERE. This comp also has Graduate's "Elvis Should Play Ska", The Employees' "Pick It Up", and The Mangy Dogs' "Itsy Bitsy"...all of their full 7"s are still available for download - if you don't have them yet get them before they're gone.

1 Boss - Rude Boys are Back in Town
2 Skarab - Babe Don't You Know the Ska?
3 Lou and the Hollywood Bananas - Hong Kong Ska
4 Skavengers - Party Girls
5 Graduate - Elvis Should Play Ska
6 Cairo - Movie Stars
7 Tigers - Ska Trekkin'
8 Vodska - L'espion Qui Venait Du Ska
9 Inner City Unit - Amyl Nitrate
10 Akrylykz - Ska'd for Life
11 The Skaooters - Summer Ska
12 The Plugs - Indoor Shopping Centre
13 The Mexicano - Trial by Television
14 The Employees - Pick It Up
15 The Army - Trendy
16 Rimshots - I Was Wrong
17 Gangsters - Wooly Bully
18 The Mangy Dogs - Itsy Bitsy
19 Alberto Camerini - Ska Tentati
20 Jamaican Survivors - Mafia Theme

There's not much info about this release out there because it wasn't exactly on the up-and-up (nothing was licensed from the bands/labels)--though everything was long out-of-print and would never have seen the light of day otherwise.

Ronan said...

Thanks, I hadn't heard some of those songs before. Shame that only very few of these bands ever released albums

Thanks a lot.

When this was released it was pretty clear who did it, (and if you look at the inside ring of the CD, you can see a matrix number which will make it pretty clear who did it). I won't name names, because he still runs a label and sells records. This was a little shady, and he hasn't done anything like it since (to my knowledge). Prior to the CD he used to sell a bunch of cassette tapes with various themed rare ska (Rare Japanese ska of the 80s, etc.)
