Looks fantastic but after reading it all (in one go) actually disappointing because they just reprinted the first one word for word and added some extras, but nowhere near enough extras, and it's just the authors favourite records basically.  And then you get like one page on an important label like Blue Cat but three pages on UK produced rubbish like the Joe label.  And yes, I agree, several errors in there as well.  Better than anything else on the market but could a missed opportunity.

Certainly thought about it but time - money - expertise in layout - all problems.

I really wanted to see full listings of all the labels with the 'boss sounds' highlighted, not just four or five from each label.

The book is great but it really needed that.

Pete,

 

Wow, cool, will do!

 

And as always, I will buy the book, look at the nice pictures and then buy the "Tojan Ska Classics 3 CD Box Set", as I am a lazy bum :-)

 

 

Take care

Jurgen

 

You'll find everything in the book on Youtube Jurgen.

I got the first copy for free from a mate - and got the first round print of the new one offa Oldwah.

Marc wrote the first draft on his own and did a marvelous job. The original can go for three figures now (or at least did before the new one came out). After much interest he was convinced to update the original copy this time with the help of reggae collector and Graphic Designer Dave Oldwah. As I understand there were some corrections and a few extras but it was never intended to be a  different book.

I sold mine before the new one was announced and it just about sold at £60, and it was pristine - I heard those stories about it being £100 but never seen one actually go for that.  Same with Skinhead Bible, was happy to take £40 for it, people asking £75 or so have still got theirs.
