It would be a good time for the right product. Sure they're not anxious to repeat the pressure of heavy touring & recording just now though...

I Think If They Were To Release Something There Would Be A Better/ Youth Effective Song.

Only if Terry sings it.Concrete Jungle on Dance Craze for me, is the definitive version.Roddy's voice as seen on the tour is too weak Cool
Terry's delivery of it is fookin brilliant.

Enjoy Yourself - a happy, yet still meaningful tune which would captivate a new audience, whilst still giving something back to the original fans.

The original fans would buy the single regardless, meaning it would get a high position in the charts - giving it the airplay and TV coverage to kickstart their career once more.

That was the ONLY disappontment for me on the tour - tell a lie, I thought Friday Night, Saturday Morning sounded a bit weak also. Not complaining though, because it was still a privelege to witness them performing them.

Willo. Nail on the head there mate.

Due to my age, although I had heard my older mate's copy of Specials, I owned Dance Craze first. Terry's version was stunning. Last night I heard Roddy's live version for the first time, and although it's his song he isn't the singer Terry Hall is. It had me thinking that this is what The Specials must have sounded like in the 90s without Terry and Jerry.

I feel horrible just typing this, especially after my comments on the Pearl's Cafe thread the other week about Roddy writing such good songs.
Maybe after this tour Terry could quit the fag breaks and sing all the lead vocals?

Not sure about hitting submit... Sorry Roddy.

For me i would hate to see them end up as some cabaret act like many old bands do, i think they should either call it a day and leave us all and them with a great 30th aniversary to remember or do some brand new material possibly with Jerry.
For anything else would not do the band any favours.
