These Are The Nominees For Album Of The Month June 2015

On the shortlist for “Album Of The Month June 2015” are only two releases. To be honest, we had not much time to search the Web this time for all the new releases, because we had to finish the Ska Music Yearbook 2014, which is out now.

So we concentrated in our nominations on the names too big to overlook. One is from the USA, the other from England. One is Early to Roots Reggae, the others are 2Tone legends. Which one is your favourite?

The Expanders or The Selecter
