  1. Better Late Than Never

    Better Late Than Never is the debut full-length album by the ska/reggae band The Slackers, originally released in 1996 on Moon Ska Records. It was later remastered and re-released with three additional tracks from the original recording sessions on March 19, 2002 through Special Potato Records. The album was a notable debut for the band, paving the way for their eventual signing to Hellcat Records. It was also a significant departure from the 2 Tone and garage rock influences of the band's early days, instead opting for a sound akin to the traditional ska acts of 1960s Jamaica. The album was produced by noted ska/reggae producer Victor Rice, who later collaborated with members of the band on projects by the Stubborn All-Stars and the Version City Rockers. Two of the songs on the album, "Work Song" and "Our Day Will Come" were both previously recorded by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass on the 1966 album S.R.O., though neither of the songs were written by Alpert. The album was again reissued in 2009 by Asbestos Records as a single disc that included a 7". It was available on black vinyl in a limited quantity of 150 or on white in a limited quantity of 350.
