The Specials

I got their self titled album recently (2002 remastered version), and love it. Ska usually gets a bad rap, but I have no idea why?

So yes...appreciate! (while I go track down more 2Tone records.)

woot!

i've got that cd

i like ska. i don't care what kind. third wave, 2-tone, skinhead reggae, whatever. sure there's stuff i don't like, but on the whole stuff that's labeled ska is usually so damn catchy. and you can never have too many versions of "pressure drop."

Haha...I got it after I heard an excellent version of "Message to you Rudy" on a Meskie's live album. Somehow everything goes back to the Meskies/Clash....I wonder why?

there is an equation, i think it goes something like this...

joe = god


"i wanna ask a question...now hands up, and be honest - who bought a pork pie hat back in the day?"

I don't have any Specials albums myself, but I have heard a few of their songs...good stuff .

to a mention of the English Beat, too . Like what I've heard by them as well.

First record I ever bought (aged 11) was Gangsters,The Specials first single,which did not appear on the UK version of the album.

To bayernfc,see if you can track down a movie called Dance Craze.It shows 2Tones biggest artists of the day in concert.I remember going to the movie theater with my uncle to see it back in 1981.I know it was released on VHS,and I've got the album in my loft somewhere gathering dust.

I'm getting out of this thread quick,I feel myself being transported back to 1979...........

I got to see them live and they kept getting pissed at all the people trying to stage dive. They threatened to stop the show if it kept up.
