AllMusic Review by

This collection may have set itself up for a fall with the title it boasts, but except for a few notable omissions, the tracks are all classic ska from both its Two Tone phase and the Jamaican originals that influenced the trend. The 18 tracks include numerous fan favorites like "Guns of Navarone" by the Skatalites, "007" by Desmond Dekker & the Aces, "Train to Skaville" by Justin Hinds & the Dominoes, "Gangsters" by the Specials, "On My Radio" by the Selecter, "Miss Jamaica" by Jimmy Cliff and "Rudy, A Message to You" by Dandy Livingstone.
