Ghetto Ska is a stellar compilation of tracks from vaults of the Wirl & Federal Studios – backed by the Skatalites and featuring numbers by Theophilus Beckford, Frank Cosmo, Lloyd Clarke and others. The vocals are soulful and the shuffle rhythm in full effect here – heavy with numbers fronted by T Beckford. Includes "Don't Have A Ticket Don't Worry", "Seven Long Years" and more by T Beckford, "Come On My People" and "Brother Nathan" by Daniel Johnson, "Love Me Or Leave Me" by Lloyd Clarke, "On Your Knees" by Frank Cosmo, "Now You're Gone" by Shenley & Annette, "Streets Of Glory" by Basil Gabiddon and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
