Little surprise that the Beat (or English Beat, depending on what country the band found itself in) quickly achieved a cult status that has yet to die. A perfect blend of Madness' warm, winning spin on ska and the early Specials' tenser, darker sound, the septet created pop/rock/ska fusions that were instantly memorable and rewarded repeated listens. This compilation showcases many of the band's strongest points, including its two biggest American hits in the incipient alternative scene. The album wraps up with a fiery live medley of "Get a Job" and "Stand Down Margaret," recorded in Boston in late 1982, a bonus that captures the band at a definite highpoint.

The Beat Goes On is a compilation album by the British ska/rock band The Beat released in the US in 1991. Roger has released two solo albums, 1988s Radical Departure album included band members Horace Panter and Fuzz Townshend. On 2001s Inside my Head album, Roger pursued a more dance/electronic sound, in the early 1990s, Roger joined members of The Specials to form the new band Special Beat which released two live albums. In 1996 Roger sang back-up and toasting on the new version of The Beds Too Big Without You on Stings Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot CD-Maxi single, the rock band Smash Mouth featured Roger on their song You Are My Number One in 2003.

What Is Beat?" was the first compilation of English Beat released in America. They were multicultural, multi generational (sax man Saxa was 50 years old when he joined the group) and politically savvy. Their music could invoke controversy without the confrontation of obscenity (see "Stand Down Margaret") and mix soul and reggae without having to resort to more trendy measures. When I finally purchased "What Is Beat?" on tape, their first compilation album, I was in heaven. When my music collection converted to CD "What Is Beat?" was one of the first CDs I purchased. It was a slight disappointment, though, because the CD could not hold as much music as the tape did and a few songs had to be cut. Bummer.
