Even though many of the most successful 'pop musicians' and others outside of the classical sphere have achieved great things creatively OUTSIDE of the educational route, it's still a sad state of aff ...

A version of Jose Feliciano's Rain (Listen To The Pouring Rain), a hit for Bruce Ruffin on Trojan Records in 1972, also covered by Madness on The Danger Men album.

It's understandable if people are a little wary about the album but on the whole, I think they're doing the right thing by putting out new material. It must keep it fresh for them as a band, I'd imagi ...

It's good to see these previews. Yet coming from an era where reviews generally came out a week or so prior to release, or on the date itself, at the same time it's a little odd to have so much inform ...

I'd agree that Jerry and Terry's tastes do run on similar lines. There was a documentary on BBC Radio 2 about ten years ago, where Terry said Jerry's a genius but didn't like to delegate, so that's so ...

If anything, the announcement ends a lot of the speculation and wishful thinking that's been going on for so long, as to whether Jerry would be on board or not. That would have been great but it isn't ...

It is a great review. Really looking forward to it. If I have not done the link properly, search for Specials2 on Facebook.



Cheers Harry, the link is fine.

Going by the review, it sounds quite musically diverse and modern-day, which I reckon is a good thing. HarryJ, do you have a link for it?

Handsworth Revolution is a great album, a real snapshot of the time. Though 'True Democracy' I think is their best ever.

Back To Black - I've not heard a better album released since then.

Keeping the Beat theme going, I found a song released in the mid 70s by their producer Bob Sargeant.
