Vintage ska-punk from American group Sublime. This 1996 self-titled album was their third and final, recorded in a heroin haze and cutting in hip-hop and bluesy influences to augment the ska. The tracklist includes cover versions of Bob Marley and Gershwin as well as a pile of Sublime originals. Remastered double LP on Universal.

9/10 The Doc Customer review, 9th June 2016
Still sounding fresh after all these years, this is a welcome reissue of a genre classic from way back in 1996. It's a mind-bogglingly proficient blend of reggae, ska and skate punk, shot through with some blues and even a bit of gangsta rap for good measure. The band are supremely skilled musicians, and Brad Nowell's vocals are beautifully soulful from start to finish. There are some stone cold classics on here - What I Got, Santeria and Jailhouse to name but three - but really it's one of those records where every single track is an absolute winner. Now the sun's shining, grab yourself a copy and do as the man says - fire up the bong, crank up the song.......Tremendous stuff.
