Recently unearthed 'lost recordings' from the early New York ska scene in 1980. On CD and LP.

When the NYC ska scene germinated in parallel to the UK Two-Tone movement, the Max's Kansas City club was at the heart of it. The clubs pioneering record label, run by Max's booker Peter Crowley, recorded a number of sessions in 1980, including with legendary Skatalites founder Roland Alfonso. But only two 7" singles, by San Francisco's The Offs and NYC's The Terrorists, ever got issued, prior to the label folding. Subsequently the NY ska scene exploded, with many bands achieving great success. Only now can these five studio recordings of Roland Alphonso's most well-known ska instrumentals and unissued sessions by The Terrorists and The Offs be heard.

In total ten of the album's 15 tracks are issued for the very first time, and it comes with authoritative sleeve notes on the inner bag by ska writer and player 'Marco On The Bass', Mark Wasserman.

Tracklist: - Roland Alphonso - Tear Up; The Terrorists - Pressure and Slide; Riis Park; Roland Alphonso - Musical Resurrection; The Terrorists - Justice; The Offs - You Fascinate Me; Roland Alphonso - Four Corners; The Terrorists - Working in a Coalmine; Treat Her Right; Roland Alphonso - Sax Skandal; The Offs - My World; The Terrorists - Fade Away; Roland Alphonso - Bridge View; The Offs - Easier Said Than Done; The Terrorists - Take It Easy (Champs Elysee).
