Herbsman presents Essential Ska Vol 1

I’m predicting that this will be a popular posting here at the House of Skull, mainly because it’s the perfect way to grab a chunk of swingin’ ska originals in one handy package – perfect for any occasion involving a good time. Nice one Herbsman.

Ive been playing some of these for years in my set & i never ever get bored of them, The ‘Prince Buster All Stars’ tracks sit in my brain for days after hearing them & who could tire of the mighty ‘Desmond Riley – Skinheads A Message To You’. 31 jumpup SKA hits mixedup into one mp3 file” – Herbsman
