i've been listening to a lot of really early ska and calypso stuff lately. any recommendations other than the really obvious stuff.

i really like

maytals
gaylads
lord kitchener
prince buster
skatalites
desmond dekker and all those gnarly old dudes

and early two tone and rocksteady as well while we're on the subject

specials
graduate
english beat
madness

i tend to avoid too much reggae and newer stuff but i'm open to anything i haven't heard

no offense to you or your kin, but ska sucks 1000 cocks in hell
