The Specials / Terminal 5 New York 21/04/10

I wasn't actually at this Gig but I got the pleasure of listening to the Live show thanks to The budtheweiser he's a lovely chap Smile anyway the Gig got off to a flying start with Do The Dog and (Dawning Of A New) Era and one of the best Live versions of Hey Little Rich Girl I've heard. then their was some minor trouble from a member of the audience but Terry sorted it out as he usually does I'm guessing something was thrown at Terry but I'm not sure, It Doesn't Make It Alright was the next song (Perfect Choice) Terry then went for a P*** according to Roddy who then performed a mind blowing version of Concrete Jungle.

A Message To You Rudy was then Introduced by Lynval but was interrupted by Terry saying he wouldn't have wanted to play here if George Bush was still pushing the buttons, he then went on to praise President Obama saying to the audience you have a future now. Do Nothing was next and again Terry takes the mike stand saying Thank heavens for free health care and rightly so.

Nite Klub has a very, very long intro and left you wondering what was Terry doing ? maybe he was trying to undo the double bows in his shoe laces as he explained later Smile he then Invited everybody back the the Hotel for a party afterwards and advising people to knock on Mr.Golding's door at 4:00am saying he would be very happy to speak to you Smile Terry and the band were on top form for the rest of the Gig Too Much Too Young was a right belter followed by You're Wondering Now, Ghost Town And Enjoy Yourself. The last song Long Shot Kick De Bucket another stormer each member of The Specials played their heart out for 90 minutes I could feel the atmosphere and see the sweat on the walls without actually being there. The Specials are the only band from the 2 Tone era or from any era that can give you the same Buzz 30 years on, We Are One And One Is All.

That recording might have been my master that I recently posted to a bit torrent site...i am currently looking for a copy of the first night of Terminal 5 (the 20th) which I attended but took the night off from "archiving". If there is one floating around please pm me.

thanks!
