Floyd Lloyd & the Potato 5 Meet Laurel Aitken

Potato 5, The Featuring Floyd Lloyd Seivright - CD - Rating: 8/10

This CD has a bit of a branding problem. Is it a Potato 5 record? Laurel Aitken? Floyd Lloyd? In any event, this is a ska record from the 90’s with a very first-wave sound. Ska like this is good, albeit incredibly formulaic. I can only take so much of it and, thankfully, this is a short nine song album. I like to put on “Jesse Jackson” and watch news coverage of the Blago trial (injecting “Junior” after the chorus).
