Anybody got this solo album ? From 1991 l believe. Ive never heard any track from it, is it worth getting or not ? On a side note, Dave does an interview on The English Beat site with Richard Blade ta ...

l think that was their peak, although l liked the rat in my kitchen album. Signing off, Present arms and Labour of love for me are their 3 classic albums.

l really like Rise and Fall, it was a more grown up album, but it still had Mikes touches. Certain band members cannot be replaced, however hard you try. (The Specials and Dammers). Something is alway ...

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 ...

Mad not Mad was always a big let down to me, l think Mike Barson leaving killed the group really. His imput was sorely missed on the album. They tried to polish themselves up too much, and make an adu ...

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.

I used to avidly listen to the top 40, recording it on my cassette player, listening to it back, deciding which singles to buy. Loved the album chart too, l even used to listen to Paul Gambaccini and ...

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 !

Just had the cd turn up in my post. Will give it a listen later. Again, why do they have to look so scruffy ? its not how The Specials should be portrayed. The sharp look of the band was always just a ...

To be fair Terry has looked a scruffy bugger for years now. Even in the suits he wears on stage he looks like he has slept in them for weeks at a time.

Scruffy bunch in that first picture of the three of them on the site. The Specials were all about style back in the day as well as the music, they look more like they have just done a day shift in a f ...

Is that plain grey cover going to to be it then ? Or is that just an image for pre sales ? Surely they could have come up with something a bit more imaginative. As some one else said on here, why not ...
