Product Description:

The 1998 reissue of WILD CHILD contains four bonus tracks that did not appear on the original release.
Producers: Stewart Levine, Jerry Dammers, Chris Silagyi, Pat Foley, Garry Bell.
Contains all the tracks The Untouchables recorded for Stiff Records.
While the ska revival of the '80s is generally thought of as a British phenomenon, the Untouchables--despite recording for U.K.-based Stiff Records--were ska warriors who hailed from Southern California. Consequently, there's a bit more soul and swing and a tad less punk-informed urgency to their debut album, WILD CHILD, than you'll find in the work of the band's English peers. The American funk/R&B influence that set the Untouchables apart from the Specials and Madness makes for a more varied sonic experience, giving WILD CHILD a commonality with the pan-stylistic sounds of post-ska outfits like Fine Young Cannibals and Fishbone, though they never achieved a comparable level of commercial success.
