You Must Be Good b/w You Must Be Good Dub

Ska in the World SIWI 046 7", released 2005 (Japan)

This is what I get...both for being out of the game for a number of years, and for allowing too much time to pass between Japan visits. Things like "Ska in the World" happen. This Japanese label began to release a whole host of ska albums and singles, some original, some that had been previously released elsewhere. Part of this massive wave of releases has been a steady stream of very limited 7"s (limited to 300 least for the early ones). This was the first single that started making collecting Slackers vinyl difficult. The value has not appreciated all that much, despite its scarcity. There was one notably high-priced exception sold on Discogs - I'm still not sure if that was a legit sale. Black vinyl.
