Album Reviews:

Record Collector (magazine) (p.99) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's the mighty, heavy-duty rocksteady anthems such as the title track, 'Train To Skaville' and 'Train to Glory' which have the LP a very expensive ticket nowadays..."

Album Notes

Their debut album, far more rocksteady than ska, recorded with Tommy McCook and the Supersonics. It's excellent, consistent stuff from the prime of rock steady, with seductively cooing harmonies and falsettos; few if any other acts brought '60s soul and Jamaican rhythms together with such entrancing results. The CD reissue adds a Lee Perry production ("Love and Respect") and an updated version of "Train to Ska-Ville." ~ Richie Unterberger
