This release should be interesting, I hope they use tracks from all 4 Dexys albums and just the first? Very Happy

The All-stars follow up their Studio One ska takes on 2 Tone and the Rolling Stones with their third studio album – an unbeatable take on Dexys Midnight Runners, circa. 1960′s Kingston, JA Smile

Sounds good Paul - don't know if songs from albums 3 and 4 will work as well as the first 2. Either way, it's an album I'll be getting. The biggest problem for me is that they won't cover every song I want to hear - maybe they need to do a deluxe version...

Anyone know how many tracks are on this new album?

there were only 8 on the two tone album, then 10 on skatisfaction, hopefully at least 12 on this one

I will be buying, but hoping for a decent number of tracks

According to their facebook page, if you order the CD it should be released in time for Christmas

track listing:

Side One
Burn It Down
Geno
Seven Days Is To Long
I Couldn't Dub It If I Tried

Side Two
There There My Dear
Because of You
Jackie Wilson Said
Come On Dubleen

Bonus tracks (CD & Digital only)
Because of You (organ version)
Seven Days Is To Long (instrumental)

A little disappointing that there are only 10 tracks on the album (only 8 if you do not include the bonus tracks) unfortunately this is a common theme on the Phoenix City All-Stars albums.

preview of the album here

Got my copy today, just giving it first play now.
Didn't realise the pre order CDs were limited edition too, mines number 13 of 100.
Very neat little package, The CD looks like a vinyl, I don't think I have another like that, pictures of them on their facebook page if you scroll down a bit

https://www.facebook.com/PhoenixCityAllStars

Total running time is only 32 minutes, which is a bit of a downside (especially as this includes 2 bonus tracks) but not unusual for them.

Has anyone got any updates on the VINYL release date? Just checked my PayPal account and noticed I paid for this in February 2015!

I'm guessing it didn't get launched at this years LISF.

I think the album was due to be released in February, I would email LISF if you ordered it through them to see whats going on

I too am waiting for the vinyl of this, which I paid for when first announced early last year. Received the CD around christmas which was paid for in December. I will leave it a while yet unless someone confirms thay have received the vinyl.
What with The Beat LP which has yet to materialise too. I will not be shelling out for any more like this a year or more upfront.

Anyone seen the vinyl yet?

The Happy People Records bandcamp site lists Skatisfaction and Searching For The Young Ska Rebels vinyl as shipping within one day so I guess stock is now available.

I'm still waiting . . . . . .
