Moon Ska MR117 CD, released 1997

Skaville Japan Vol. 1

Phalanx PXLP-010/PX-010 CD, released 1997 (Japan)

This compilation of Japanese ska (J-Ska) bands first came out as Skaville Japan Vol. 1, exclusively in Japan. The Moon Ska version came shortly therefater. There are a few differences between the two. The U.S. CD contains tracks from three bands that do not appear on the Japanese one: the Cokehead Hipsters, Young Punch, and Duck Missile. The Japanese CD contained a hidden track - a live version of "Alone in Summer Place" by the Drops (a great song, but a terrible recording of it. The LP has a different Drops track - their version of "Shame and Scandal." This compilation showed the world that there was something good going on in Japan's ska underworld.
