Excellent reissue of late 1970 and early '80s recordings by the London-based Steel an Skin steel drum band! This is truly excellent stuff - a wicked blend of dubby disco and reggae from ex-members of Grand Master Flash's favourite band, the 20th Century Steel Band! Check out the track Afro Punk Reggae (Dub)! Comes with a bonus DVD of Steve Smith's 1979 documentary about the group! This is a limited edition Japanese import and comes with English and Japanese text in a deluxe card gatefold sleeve! Highly recommended!

2. Fire In Soweto
3. Hi Life
4. Afro Punk Reggae (Dub)
