Released on vinyl for the first time ever! Originally issued in the fall of 1995, “SKA IN HI FI” was a major evolution from the band’s debut album in 1991. A tremendous 16-song effort with non stop danceable grooves, time tested live staples appeared as studio versions for the first time, making the album an instant hit for Moon Ska NYC. Includes their most famous composition, “William Shatner,” an ode to their favorite Star Trek actor and all around renaissance man, plus fan faves “Nude Beach” and  “Spider On My Bed”.  THE SCOFFLAWS still sound best when they get off on an big band instrumental ska groove, especially on Duke Ellington’s “Caravan” (“Skaravan”) and Herbie Hancock’s “Watermelon Man” – but don’t get me wrong,  the vocals are very efficient on this sophomore classic.  Overall it’s a truly spirited affair – the band never rushes their music, instead preferring to rely on relaxed tempos and letting their powerful horn section lead the way.  At the time of this recording the band was truly at it’s height, included in their ranks were VICTOR RICE and BUFORD O’SULLIVAN alongside founder RICHARD BROOKS
