The Boilers

Rockin' Steady

SKA' Records SKAR 005 LP, released 1988

Planned for release as Moon Records MR018 with the title "Tap It"

The Boilers were the first real King Django-led ska band.  This album was slated for release on Moon, but it just never happened.  The SKA' Records version did come out in the UK, albeit with one of the least-inspired album covers of all time ("It's like, how much more black could this possibly be?  And the answer is none.  None more black.").  As it never actually came out stateside, it is fairly difficult to find, and can command a sizable price tag.  You might happen upon it for less at some point, but the $30 range is fairly normal.  It has never been re-released.
