Fire Songs (Vanguard Records). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Ska was pronounced dead over a decade ago, yet the tours go on and the crowds keep coming. For The English Beat‘s current refusal to fade, Dave Wakeling and crew brought along a couple surprise UK ska legends- Lynval Golding of The Specials, and The Selecter’s Pauline Black. Jen Cray saturated herself in the ska sounds of yesterday’s England.
