A nice compilation of Big Youth stuff btw.
I personally would have added '23rd psalm' a really nice 7" from the black ark.

ジャマイカン・カリプソと言ったらこの名グループ"Hiltonaries"がオススメ!南国気分たっぷりで、名曲もたくさんカバーしているのでより気持ち良いアルバムです!作られた年代ははっきり分かりませんが"Ska"と付くタイトルが多い事から

could you upload the ska pioneer section again, this time at another site (www.zshare.net for example)?
