The Toasters - "CBGB OMFUG Masters Live - June 28, 2002" CD

Despite not being much of a fan of ska, I can appreciate this seminal and influential NY-based group, here celebrating over 20 years of skankin' and drinkin'. This stuff contrasts with the awful wave of pop-ska around these days (not naming names, but you know them, and you probably hate them, too). Anyway, the Toasters hold true to the classic 2-Tone ideal, keeping the Jamaican spirit intact and locking into some tight rock-steady grooves. Respect. (MVD Audio)
