The past few years has seen a significant surge in demand for 'skinhead' or 'boss' reggae from the late sixties and early seventies. In response to this demand comes an upgraded and expanded version of the classic 'Monkey Business' LP, which originally saw issue as a vinyl LP in 1980, at the height of the 2Tone era. This long overdue 2CD expanded edition of the album features the album's original 20 tracks augmented by an additional 36 skinhead favourites from 1968 to 1970. Presented in a striking new sleeve, the 16-page booklet includes a fascinating essay on the original skinhead scene adorned by an array of rare and striking imagery from the original skinhead era. 'Monkey Business' provides the starting point for all those seeking to discover the sounds that inspired a generation: as the cover asserts, this is the definitive skinhead reggae collection!
