Artist:  The O.C. Supertones
Label:  BEC Recordings

After a five-year hiatus, Christian ska's favorite sons are back together for some summer spot dates at major festivals. Though this isn't the reunion albums fans were hoping for, it's an ultra fun 13-track recollection of the group's horn-heavy catalogue thus far. While not as comprehensive as 2005's Unite or 2008's double disc Ultimate Collection (and certainly suggesting overkill in the compilations department), there's still plenty to smile about on these spiritually skanktified tunes that are said to mirror the upcoming tour's set list.
