Untitled[edit]

I have no idea why anyone would say this band is of dubious importance.

The article may be brief so far, but I definitely plan to expand it.

I am not sure if all the information in "discography" is correct. I own a CD called "Let's Ska and Rock Steady" by the Ethiopians which was released by the "Jamaican Gold" label in 1992 (and not 1968 or 1990). Unfortunately I don't have the cover of that CD (I bought it second-hand), so I am not sure if it is a compilation or a re-release of The Ethiopians' debut album. Researching the internet I was not able to find a track listing for their debut LP "Engine '54: Let's Ska and Rock Steady". If anyone can provide track listings of the albums mentioned in the article, it would be greatly appreciated. AVD —Preceding unsigned comment added by 187.2.147.202 (talk) 17:28, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Request article for review (article needs a picture)[edit]

Hello, hopefully a Wikipedia editor who knows what to do will see this. I'd really like to see a picture put on the main page of this topic, because I feel that a Wikipedia page without a picture lacks proper representation. I'm avoiding the headache of learning all the rules and guidelines Wikipedia has regarding copyright images, which means that I'm clueless on how to do this myself. So could someone who knows how to fix this problem with this Wikepedia page please work on it. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 16noodles66 (talkcontribs) 07:48, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
