Damn .... never heard that before. I have the CD but there are three tracks missing and Stereotype is one of them sadly.

Great track off the LP - thanks for sharing Liam

I've always loved this version of Stereotype and it happened that I bought "The Two Tone Story" before even having my "More Specials" LP. So it was a surprise for me to hear the original song which is in fact much slower paced, like in "slo-mo".
I was wondering from which Specials concert was lifted this live version. Anybody knows ?

Keep skanking !

This is the version I always play.

Like you, I got that lp long before More Specials, and always preferred this version.

'Stereotype' is my favourite Specials song. I was so used to the 'More Specials' version, when I heard this I was amazed that they'd made the song even better.

There's no info on the sleeve as to where this was recorded and it's definitely not on any Specials bootlegs I've heard.

I loved the version they did on the last tour, although Nev's bit was a bit short, before he went into 'Warning, warning nuclear attack...'

Liam, I couldn't agree more,this is a fantastic version of the song, better than the slower album/single version
