23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : the ’70s : Side B (part 1)

MayMixTape70-SideBPart1Our sojourn into the world of ’70s ska and rocksteady continues! Finding all these great songs for this episode was a blast! I’ll admit that I’d never heard any of these songs until I submersed myself into it to create this episode. I don’t (and you shouldn’t) consider myself a ska expert, I’m just an enthusiast with enough free time on my hands to find great tracks and cobble them together for anyone willing to listen. This might be the best one yet, these are songs I know I’m going to personally revisit in the future and probably find out more from these artists!
