It would be nice if they officially released these though. Something for the fans to have for 40th anniversary. Whats the betting we get another two tone compilation later in the year to mark it ?

True, those first 3 UB40 singles did well, and the album did too. And you are right, the public did still have to buy into them. I always remember Peter Powell playing a band called Rouen to death,but ...

So true what Bowie says. And as you say, even more so nowadays. Its a shame, but its a sad state that music is in.

Its made number 1 in the album chart. Now that is pretty impressive, l thought maybe top 40, but well done to the guys. Shows you how relevant they are 40 years on !
