          The Specials

          Ghost Town - 40th Anniversary Half Speed Master

            THE SPECIALS are one of the defining bands of the late 70’s/early 80’s along with Jerry Dammers iconic label Two Tone Records. They combined Jamaican ska and Rocksteady mixed with the energy of punk and launched a whole Ska Revival which paved the way for fellow likeminded bands Madness, The Beat and The Selecter to release their first singles.

            Having had seven top 10 singles and two Gold albums over the course of two years, the band released Jerry Dammers’ Ghost Town in June 1981, backed by Lynval Goldings’ Why? and the Terry Hall penned Friday Night Saturday Morning. The beginnings of the song were written around the closure of the Larcano dancehall in Coventry, but also reflecting what was happening in other towns and cities with urban decay, unemployment and ongoing racial tensions of the period. Themes which are still relevant today.

            The single, which was recently voted the second greatest UK single of all time by Alexis Petridis in the Guardian, reached Number One in the UK singles charts and stayed there for a further 3 weeks, becoming one of the biggest selling singles of 1981 and has remained one of the classic UK singles of all.

            This 40th Anniversary Edition has been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the original production tapes for optimum audio quality.

            STAFF COMMENTS

            Barry says: There's no denying that 'Ghost Town' is one of the most well known singles from one of the greatest Ska bands of all time, and what better way to hear it than on this brand new half-speed mastered definitive pressing? Essential purchase.

            The Selecter

            Too Much Pressure (40th Anniversary Edition)

              The Selecter were one of the key bands of the ska revival in the late 70’s and one of the few racially and sexually integrated bands on the scene. Vocalist Pauline Black wrote about sexism, racism, and social issues. Their debut release was the AA side of The Specials single ‘Gangsters’ in the summer of 1979, which only consisted of Neol Davies and John Bradbury (of The Specials) before quickly forming a full band by the end of the year. Releasing their follow up single ‘On My Radio’ which reached No. 6 in the UK charts. Their debut album ‘Too Much Pressure’ was released in February 1980 and reached No. 5 in the UK charts. The album also included two further hit singles ‘Three Minute Hero’ and ‘Missing Words’.

                    Special AKA

                    In The Studio

                      In the Studio is the third album from The Specials (Renamed Special AKA) and was originally released in 1984, long after the breakup of the original Specials. Original vocalist Terry Hall had left the band,along with Neville Staples and Lynval Golding, who had all gone on to form Fun Boy Three. For this album new vocalist Stan Campbell was enlisted. The album is a long way from their previous two releases, fusing elements of soul and jazz with their more familiar reggae influences. It’s at times claustrophobic and gives a bleak view of the world through Jerry Dammers eyes. The complete opposite of the shiny hedonistic pop that the charts were full of at the time (Wham!, Duran Duran etc.) It includes "(Free) Nelson Mandela" which was, of course, a huge hit, along with "Racist Friend” and “What I Like Most About You Is Your Girlfriend”.

                      The Specials

                      More Specials

                        The Specials were formed in Coventry in 1977. True innovators, the band began the British ska revival craze, combining the highly danceable ska and rocksteady beat with punk’s energy and attitude.

                        The band’s second album ‘More Specials’ (UK No.5, 1980) was a change in musical direction to their debut. Less frenzied and hard-hitting, it was more musically adventurous and varied, bleaker lyrics reflecting British life at the time.

                        This album has been digitally remastered from the original analogue stereo masters and the new vinyl cuts have been made using those new masters. Careful comparison was made to the first pressed copies of the original albums throughout the process to maintain the sound as the band had originally envisaged.

                        The album features a classic cover of Carl Sigman and Conrad Magidson's 1940s chestnut ‘Enjoy Yourself’ and a brooding version of the same song featuring the Go-Go's.

                        Includes: the rhythm & blues / 60s soul-style instrumental ‘Sock It to 'Em JB’ and the Mexican-flavoured ‘Holiday Fortnight’; the intriguing ‘International Jet Set’; the apocalyptic ‘Man at C&A’; the mournful, spaghetti western feel of ‘Stereotypes’; the emotional despair of ‘Do Nothing’ and the bright and breezy ‘Hey, Little Rich Girl’ (with fabulous sax solos from Madness' Lee Thompson).

                        The immortal line from ‘Pearl's Cafe’ by Terry Hall and Bodysnatchers' Rhoda Dakar, sums up their own, and the country's frustration - ‘It's all a load of bollocks, and bollocks to it all’.
