Listening to this 1993 ska compilation I got at a Bim Skala Bim show. There are 12 songs. ON SIDE A. 
Really can’t hate on cassettes.

Great compilation!

Check out Bim Skala Bim featured in the most recent issue of The Improper Bostonian:

Just a step ahead of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Bim helped pioneer the third wave of ska in America after English “2 Tone” bands the English Beat, the Specials and the Selecter led the second wave at the dawn of the ’80s. A precursor to reggae and rock steady, ska originated in Jamaica in the late ’50s, but Ferranti recalls being a teenage reggae fan influenced by those English ska revivalists. “It was a natural extension of reggae, only it’s faster, with a little more energy,” he says. “It was a good place for a bass player, because there were interesting bass lines.”

Read the full piece here.

Then see them at the Middle East Downstairs August 14.

There were TWO songs from Jimmy Kimmel the other night! Here’s Mighty Mighty Bosstones with “They Will Need Music.” Different song, different outfit.
