Since I ran some Selecter sessions a few days ago, I thought I would also include that other landmark band from the Two-Tone arsenal, The Specials. This batch of sessions from the BBC were recorded on May 29, 1979 and feature the band hitting their stride. They had already made a huge splash in the UK and were getting a wave of popularity going in the States, through a number of tours and club dates (including a rather memorable stint at The Whiskey A-go-go in Hollywood).
Here are three of their trademark songs from that period:
2. Too Much, Too Young
3. Concrete Jungle
4. Monkey Man
They recently (as of 2009) reformed and have been touring and recording.
Just goes to show you, you can't keep a good thing down.
Enjoy, and . . .play loud (obviously).
