BOOZE AND GLORY: The Reggae Sessions Vol 2: LP

Mar 15, 2022

Second installment of this Polish-by-way-of-London oi band’s reggae/ska/rocksteady reworkings of their songs. I’m a huge fan of the genre from the ’60s all the way through, and with the help of the Vespa & The Londonians, these trad skins have managed to pull it off. Crisp production with a nod to the old days of analog Jamaican production makes for a solid listen. I’m not sure this is necessary if you already have a house full of reggae records, but if you are a trad skin wanting to dip their toe, you could do a lot worse. –Tim Brooks (Pirates Press)
