Dr. Ring Ding began his professional career in 1987 playing trombone with El Bosso und Die Ping Pongs, one of Germany’s most famous ska bands. His experience in El Bosso led to his lifelong love for Jamaican music. By early 1993 he had formed his very own band, Dr. Ring Ding and the Senior All-Stars, and over the next ten years they would release five albums, numerous singles, and two albums backing legendary Jamaican vocalists Doreen Shafer and Lord Tanamo.

A series of guest appearances on Stubborn releases and American releases on Moon Ska and Jump Up helped solidify his fan base in the United States, and soon Dr. Ring Ding was enjoying a worldwide audience for his snappy vocal style and tremendous musicianship. Ring Ding is not only a popular live performer, he is a studio musician, arranger, and producer in many different genres such as Swing, Rhythm & Blues, Hip Hop, Rumba, and Punk, but above all in Reggae, Dancehall and Ska. DR RING DING has also made spectacular contributions to dancehall single selections for international producers- his “Doctor's Darling” went top 20 on the German Black Music Charts at the end of 2002, "Vom Vater" appeared on numerous Reggae compilations, and he has shared dancehall singles with Sizzla, Capleton, and Tanya Stephens. 

 Dr. Ring Ding is always creating new music. This important album looks back at some of the finer moments in his career, unearthing rarities and vinyl-only singles in one nice package. This is not a “best of” per se – this is a “personal selection” hand-picked by the good Doctor himself. Every Ring Ding fan should own this not only for the rare and unreleased tracks, but for the true pleasure of the album’s sequence and diversity, comprising Reggae, Ska, Dancehall, Calypso, and even some hip hop. King Django and The Slackers' Vic Ruggiero guest.
