Spot on. The Beat were melodic and infectious. Eight hit singles and three chart albums prove their value. It would be a delight to see them all back on stage together again. General Public also had their moments of brilliance, but The Beat had an emphatic sparkle. I'll be buying these releases and watching the DVDs in rejoice.

Someone's done a great job with these deluxe editions. There's some really rare tracks and footage included.

The Record Store Day 7" was done really well, too and given the catalogue number Feet 19 to follow on from the 'Ackee 123' single from 1983.

Why don't EMI pull their finger out and do something similar with The Specials back catalogue? It's about time there were deluxe editions of the two original albums. What a waste it was when the albums were remastered and no bonus material apart from some cd-rom videos. They didn't even bother including the tracks from the free 'More Specials' single.

So very pleased to see Night and Day from Kid Jensens session getting a proper airing and It Makes Me Rock (is it the Kid Jensen version I wonder?)
From the old tapes I have the only missing tracks seem to be session versions of Ackee 1 2 3, Sugar and Stress and Sorry all from Kid Jensen. Mine are incomplete due to tape transfers over the years Sad . Other than that. Excellent 11/10.
