Ska ska time is here..trust me ! Funtime inna de dance ! Greensleeves' latest release is this excellent one riddim album, coming from Freddie McGregor's Big Ship camp. "Reggae Ska" is the ultimate Carnival riddim, an instant classic ! If this album doesn't make you dance you're in deep trouble. Recapturing the golden days of ska "Reggae Ska" is a melodic, infectious riddim every artist in Jamaica is wanting to voice it. Sixteen potential chart topping hits on this hot, hot riddim while Boy Ken adds some international flavour to the album, riding the riddim Japanese style. It's an album everyone should experience ! Follow Papa San's advice : "Do the Ska, Ska, Ska...watch mi now !"
