Lynval gave an emotional tribute on stage to Rico explaining that it was him that first went round to Rico's home to ask him to come and play with The Specials.

And Rhoda's voice sounds better tha ...

Agreed.
But if there IS to be a deluxe release, I would be getting very excited if I was to read on the track listing things like Do The Dog (take 17, previously unreleased)......that probably makes ...

An outrageous suggestion, and one that has been mentioned several times before on this forum, but maybe the remaining members could come up with some new material?
Instead we have fans hoping for som ...

It should've happened a long time ago- after the 2 2009 tours in my opinion- but NOW has to be the time to pull the plug. The Specials should never appear on stage again unless it is the 7 of them.... ...

Have to admit I was sat there assuming that when the Specials came on it'd be the performance of Rudy that has been shown countless times before. So after an hour and 55 minutes there was something th ...

Best Friend was definitely on TOTP but I remember at the time thinking 'I don't like Dave Wakeling's yellow t-shirt.' Of course the Best Friend video- which IS on the re-issue DVD- is essentially a st ...

I hope these TOTP re-runs continue into 1980. Might finally get to see 'The Whisper' again. I might be wrong but I don't think that performance is available anywhere? What's the betting 1 of the pervs ...
