For anyone who caught "Free Yourself" on MTV or stumbled on to it at a party or on the radio, this is a treat. The Untouchables were a great, underrated ska-esque band that really knew how to groove. The songs are all fairly strong, the record diverse, and the extras worth the money. Highly recommended!

Wow, a re-release of an old tape that I had lost. It sure brings back a lot of old memories. Great artistry here,folks. The Untouchables had a style all their own, it is hard to find a group that could make a respectable recording and make it sound even better live! "What's Gone Wrong?" has to be the prettiest song that I have ever heard. Unlike some bands that have faded into obscurity, these guys still travel and play. They still sound as good as they did 10 years ago! This CD is worth buying!!!

An epic piece of work by a terribly underrated SoCal band. Many of these songs were featured in the classic 80s Bystrom surf flick "Beyond Blazing Boards". This album is inspirational on many different levels, for sure. From the adrenallin pumping "Wild Child" to the reflective, reggae-esque "What's Gone Wrong", this album is non-stop. Hit after hit after hit...today's artists should take some notes.

This is a classic album from one of the pioneer bands in the American ska and mod scene. Though some of the tracks miss the mark (Piece of Your Love, Soul Together), this album should be in your collection if you are a fan of ska, mod, soul and scootering culture. Back when this album came out, a lot of the hardcore "scenester" fans dismissed it, but I've always liked it, and this album should have been a stepping stone to launch the band to further success. Tracks "Wild Child," "What's Gone Wrong," "Free Yourself," "Mandigo," "Laser Show," are classics and still sound great after 20-plus years. The inclusion of the bonus tracks "Lebanon," "Whiplash" and "The Lonely Bull" (the Herb Alpert cover) make this a great package. If you want to get a feel for what the underground music scene in LA in the early 80's was all about, listen to this album. Unfortunately, bands like The Untouchables are mostly forgotten, but they played an important role in bridging the musical gap between the British 2-Tone movement (which was pretty-much dead by the time this album was released) and what would become the third wave of ska spearheaded by American ska-fusion bands in the 1990's.

The Untouchables were knocking around SoCal back in the early 80's putting out their brand of Soulful Ska. This is great stuff in the English Beat Selecter mode with some Soul And Funk thrown in the mix. Songs like Wild Child, I Spy For The FBI and Free Yourself should move you, unless you're dead. A few songs sound dated (80's production)but for the most part very fresh. This CD contains ALL of the music recorded/released by Stiff UK ( The US Enigma EP The Lp on MCA and B-sides and single versions of lp tracks)So happy that this was reissued! What are you waiting for.. come on and FREE YOURSELF!

As much as I love The Untouchables and was dying for someone to put all their classics to CD, this is not what I thought I'd be typing here. Cherry Red's remastering has terrible sound quality. Compared to the original vinyls, it sounds like you're listeing to these songs through giant ear muffs. None of the edge and liveliness, neither the great guitar kicks nor the low beaty thumps, that IS the distinct Untouchable sound gets conveyed here.

Awesome awesome album! There are more great songs on this CD than on just about any other CD I have ever purchased! Dont you hate it when you buy a CD and find out that there are only 1 or 2 good songs? Not in this case! Buy it if you like OG ska, you wont regret it! now if only they would release the 6 or so videos that they had for this album on DVD! Jerry Miller are you listening???

I played this album so much in high school I wore the ink off the cassette tape! I probably hadn't heard it for 15 years, but when I popped in the CD I was singing along word for word again right away. Not that it's earth shakingly original, but this album is so much fun to listen to, and that's what's really more important. Tight, funky musicianship, a great party album and excellent remastering. "Lasershow" hasn't aged well, but everything else - the classic title track, "Free Yourself," "I Spy For The FBI" and my personal favorite "Piece Of Your Love" - still gets you dancing. Glad to finally have a copy of "Stepping Stone" again, and the other B sides - especially "Whiplash" and "Shine On" - are great too.

If you're reading this review, you know this is a lost '80s classic. Don't wait any longer - get it back in your collection!
