"Wait, that voice is coming out of a big, bald, white German guy?" Dr. Ring-Ding is fantastic. That's all there is to it. One of the most important ska personalities in Europe throughout the third wave. This was the inaugural Dr. Ring-Ding & the Senior Allstars album. Originally released in Germany. The Moon Ska CD followed a couple of years later, with different artwork. The only vinyl was the German version on Grover. Grover re-pressed this one in 2015 for the 20 year anniversary. It was limited to 250 copies and came in a poster sleeve along with a bonus CD of the album. It seems there was another Grover pressing at that points that did not come with the CD...not sure how many of those there were.
