Too Much Too Young - the e.p. single.

Would play it over and over, on one of those old style record players that you could stack up the records on, in my Nan's back room when I lived at hers - great days.

The sheer attitude and energy in those live performances went some way towards helping me get over the fact I never got to see them live first time around. I also loved the cover with the picture of the crowd, I still remember most of those faces now!

So many good songs.

I choose "(Dawning of A) New Era" before TMTY

It's fast, energetic and... a perfect mix of the white angry sound of Terry and the dark sound of Lynval and Neville. Perfect melting of ska and punk. It's way to short, but there lies also it's power.
I never understood what it's about, not even know I knowing the lyrics, but I understand the vibe.

"(Dawning of A) New Era"
I have to be honest Hugh I understand it now. But then I didn't knew the exact lyrics. And when I first had the lyrics a couple a years ago, I didn't understand things like area 3. Embarassed
It took ,me some time, but I wasn't really busy understanding it. It was about the vibe for me. Cool

Knowing the lyrics, dymistified the songs for me, but it still sound really great. Shocked Cool

Did the Specials do any sentimental I've Got You Babe or It Must be Love type songs?

Not that I'd want to hear them. Wink
