Dear Specials Fans

We thought we should drop you a note to clear up any questions that you might have.

As you know we worked with The Specials to record and release 27 amazing and unique shows from across Europe and the UK.

All shows are available as CD and Download mail order from www.thespecialslive.com

We know there have been some questions on the USB.
The USB did not get released as planned. This is because, despite everyone's best efforts we have been unable to deliver enough visual content to make the USB a proper quality product. So with regret we cancelled it's release.
One thing we would like to clear up, the USB was never going to contain a video of the live show, we are not sure where this came from but that was never the plan.

We apologise again to any fan who had pre-ordered one. We waited as long as possible to see whether this would happen but it was not to be.
We personally emailed everyone who had pre-ordered the show on USB and gave them a free download of the show. We also offered them a choice of 2 x CDs of any show, which is a great saving, or a full refund and of course either way they still can access their free download. Everyone who has replied has been refunded of sent their CDs but there are still some people who have not replied to us on what they want to do. We will email them again, but if anyone has any USB related questions please can they email david.rowntree@abbeyroad.com

Now, to the much spoken of Box Set. We know that some if you think the box set is of mystical proportion but it is going to be coming. We are in the final stages of clarifying what it will contain. By the personal nature of what we are trying to set up here, it is taking a bit longer than we anticipated.
Please keep an eye on www.thespecialslive.com and we will also notify the fan clubs and forums we are in touch with. We promise it will be a great bargain for the fan who wants to own all the recorded shows.

Finally if anyone has any questions on any CD or Download purchased through the web shop they can contact Sandbag who do our fulfilment direct on orders@sandbag.uk.com
A note on the Sandbag customer service email process.
When you email them, you should receive an automated reply within seconds of emailing Sandbag customer services. If you do not receive one in your in box, please check you junk / spam folders and settings.

We had a great time working with The Specials band and you the fans over the past few months.
The vibe and excitement at the shows was excellent and indeed the shows were so exciting we felt very proud to be part of each night. Some of the ARLHN team were fans as kids the first time round...... Moonstomping was a tad more sightly then for us!! Apologies if anyone got trodden on by us!
So, thanks to all the band, you the fans and crew who made us feel so welcome.

If you have any further problems or feel we have not covered anything in this note, please contact us direct. LHN@abbeyroad.com

We want you to enjoy reliving the shows as much as we do.
If you have something to say, let us know. We can't check all the fansites and forums all the time.

All the best.

The Abbey Road Live Here Now team.

Looking forward to this.

I sincerely hope it does contail ALL of the Gigs, as initially suggested.

Cos I didnt buy any of them so's not to spoil the Box set Smile

Got a bit concerned when i read the "deciding what is going to be in the box set" comment.

Sure itll be worth the wait though!!!
