Post subject: The Specials / Vive Le Rock (US Tour 1980) 6 pages Reply with quote

I bought a copy of Vive Le Rock magazine today for the 6 pages of The Specials US tour 1980, I was surprised their was no mention of the reissue 2cd sets until I looked on the back page, Holy F*** Very Happy Very Happy
their is also a nice page on Ian Dury as well Smile

I haven't seen an add like this since 1980 Smile

I wonder how many of these they'll shift. I understand the dedicated collector market, and I suppose if you were buying them for the frst time you might as well get the latest and greatest. but how many people is that?

Just wonder though - all this re-mastering etc - CD standards have been the same for 30 - 40 years so better quality versions of old masters are probably restricted by CD technology as much as anything else.

Considering that the box set of the first two albums from the last re-issue and re-mastering (so that's twice??) is still available for less than a fiver I would guess that limits the market even more.

The first two albums in this current batch of re-issues, which is where we were all looking the goodies from, have offered zero in terms of unlreleased or unheard material, which in my eyes renders these albums pointless.

I think the magazine is always stocked at WHSmiths.

Is the article just an excerpt from Garry Bushall's Dance Craze book?
