ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deal’s Gone Bad (never forget the apostrophe, the Deal Has Gone Bad, not multiple Deals Going Bad) has been many things to many people. Watching numerous waves of ska, rocksteady and reggae music rise and fall before them, this is the band you count on to keep going, despite all odds, membership changes, trips into and out of substance dependence, marriages and even the birth of a child. For 14+ years DGB has been the reggae pride of sweet home Chicago, evolving with new personnel and new ideas, but never losing the love of Jamaican and
American soul music, piracy and the art of intoxication.

What you have before you then, is a solid 8 or more of those 14+ years; you’re holding three albums worth of material featuring Mike Park, Mike Corcoran, Karl Gustafson, Dave Simon, and a large number of assorted hooligans, jazzmen, drunks and flying elephants. But what you really have is the
evolution of the Midwest torchbearers of Jamaican music in the United States. Few others have been around as long, or remain as strong as DGB and you can consider this compilation the launching pad for the next 8 years – another chapter in the life of Chicago’s finest. You’ll hear swing, 60’s ska, rocksteady, bluebeat, reggae, soul and even dub, but what you also hear is a band coming into its own.

With its most consistent lineup in years, Deal’s Gone Bad looks to a bright future with plenty more shows, recordings and general debauchery. But for now, crack the seal on the Maker’s Mark, put the PBR on ice, tip the
Guinness and turn back the clock with Chicago’s longest running party, Deal’s Gone Bad.
