Coventry, England-based second ska generation provocateurs the Selecter never garnered the dizzying press coverage that was bestowed upon 2-Tone contemporaries like the Specials, but the group's solid musicianship and nervy delivery, the latter of which relied almost solely on the band's charismatic lead singer Pauline Black, and penchant for injecting drama into an otherwise dance-friendly though often politically charged genre, helped to extend their shelf life well into the '90s. This excellent, budget-priced collection offers up 16 reasons to back up that claim, including "Too Much Pressure," "On My Radio," "Three Minute Hero," and "The Whisper," most of which are culled from the band's still impressive 1980 debut.
