Taxi is another strong contender for 7" reissues.

I'll go with Taxi (or not as the case may be). They weren't too hot as original pressings come to that.

Never had such a bad experience with Jammys, most of my reissues sounds splendid, to even rank them along the top ten. (Volcano, Powerhouse and Midnight Rock on the other hand...)

The Jammy's 7" represses of recent years I got are not much better than the Midnight Rock, Volcano and Power Houses. The two 12 inch represses of Sleng Teng tunes were excellent though.

Thompson Sound 7" while not as bad perhaps as jammy$, Powerhouse you have a 50/50 chance of getting a crap press.

Ossie Hibbert's 'Unearthed Rock Steady' CD even slurs, full of crackles & features tunes he doesn't even have the rights to re-issue !

Carib Gems 'Original Ska Explosion Vol. 1' LP, pressed in Europe, pressed off-centre !
