Great set at Rock City Nottingham but a lot of shrugging and wonderment when they started the encore with "All The Time in the World" by Louis Armstrong ... took the party atmosphere right down

Any thoughts on the reasoning behind this

Loved Lynval and Craddock doing Redemption Song

Interesting. Terry's recorded great covers of She, Windmills of your Mind, Dream a Little Dream and Little Things over the years but I'm not sure they'd fit easily into a Specials set list.

I think the idea of an acoustic encore is good - maybe Terry and Steve C could perform Working Class Hero and Doesn't Make It Alright ?

The arrangement is a bit like the cover by My Bloody Valentine.

Strange they didn't play it at any of the previous gigs this year.

I wish this was one of the tracks on a new Terry Hall solo album, Terry has covered loads of songs down the years and I haven't heard a bad one yet Smile

I agree with campervanbob, it did take the atmosphere down, but I guess it's fitting at a tribute to Brad and Rico.
