This collectable Bad Manners album re-issued in its original USA sleeve and features original and rare studio recordings first released in the UK on T-Leaf Records in 1997 and on Moon Ska in the USA a year later, and this release features the excellent extensive sleeve notes from that American release.
This album taken from Buster Bloodvessel’s personal vaults includes original versions of ‘Night Bus To Dalston’ and ‘Elizabethan Reggae’ and a rare version of the bands the Top 50 hit ‘That’ll Do Nicely’.
Stand out tracks include the excellent covers of Dave & Ansell Collins ‘Double Barrel’, and the Nancy Sinatra classic ‘These Boots (Were Made For Stomping’) and an excellent re-working of Prince Buster’s ‘Shakin’ Up Orange street’ into ‘Shaking Up Downing Street’.
A must for Ska and Bad Manners collectors!
