Beat This! The Best of The English Beat

ARTIST: The English Beat (Google this artist)
ALBUM: Beat This! The Best of The English Beat
LABEL: London Sire Records

Beat This! is a must have collection for many. Original fans will certainly enjoy it as a one-disc profile of the band, and those unfamiliar with the group will find it gives an ample overview of the band that led the ska revival of the early '80's. In addition to inspiring and invigorating artists ranging from Sting to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones to The Tom Tom Club, The English beat made an indelible mark on music by putting ska in front of yet another generation. Fantastic linear notes, photos and artist quotes make this package a sure thing.
