CD reissue of the UK Bamboo version of HISTORY OF SKA VOL.1, which features the Peter Tosh and the Chorus' Can't You See (instead of the Delroy Wilson track of the same name which was included on the original Jamaican release). We also get three bonus tracks, the Skatalites' Skalypso, Chandley (Shenley) Duffus' No More Troubles, and Pray For Me by King Fighter.
