I agree. The live e.p. version is one of their best though. Also the edited version of the UK album version found on some overseas editions of the album is far preferable to me than the 6 min version.

Holiday Fortnight often gets skipped...would like to have heard the version with lyrics ..but instrumentals don't really push my buttons.

Original version with words on this tour Jett??? Very Happy

Possibly Ghost Town, not because I don't like the song itself but because I feel it is the most commercialised Specials song, the one that all non Specials fans can remember but not remember anything else by the group, the fact that it always reminds me of the dark days of the group splitting and maybe that I think 'Friday night, Saturday morning' should of been the lead track on the single.......

Maggies Farm took some growing on me but it stands out there on its own merit and is an overlooked Specials track

Enjoy Yourself (reprise): You feel you need an uplifting song after listening to the Muzak-based International Jet Set, especially after the Muzak ends with a crash landing, but you are denied it with what can only be described as an ironic rendition of an otherwise uplifting song.

i can think of hundreds of songs I dislike but can honestly say that not one Specials track would even come into the "dislike" category.

Doesn't Make It Alright. I'm afraid nothing could make it alright. Musically passable, but those 6th form poetry type lyrics still make me cringe 32 years later.
