Are you ready to go dance crazy to some of the most famous Ska & Reggae songs ever written?! One of the key bands of the U.K. ska revival of the late 70s and early 80s, The Beat, achieved a near-perfect balance of pop melodies and taut rhythms that made them stars in Britain and won them a worldwide following.

The Beat were and still are based in Birmingham, England. They released their debut single, Tears of a Clown b/w Ranking Full Stop, through the Specials 2-Tone label in 1979. The single went Top Ten in the U.K., and they soon struck a deal with Arista to distribute their own Go Feet label. 1980s I Just Cant Stop It (released by Sire in the United States) went gold in England on the strength of the single Mirror in the Bathroom, and the bands ferocious performances and clever blend of personal and political lyrics made them stars at home.
