This album sounds great fair play. Top quality. I also have the 40th anniversary of “Ghost Town” & the self titled album. Amazing represses. 😀🌞✌🏻

This is the second album that The Specials wrote and recorded, and only the third album to be produced by 2-Tone Records. When I saw that this album was to be repressed and half speed remastered at Abbey Road I new that I had to get another copy. Both 180g 12”s play at 45rpm and the 7” single that came with the original album is also included. I have 3 original copies of this album that were originally released in 1980, just one year after their debut. This was the last album that Terry, Lynval and Neville all feature upon, and I believe it is The Specials best. On this album Dammers starts to become their musical producer, and this can be seen in the heavy use of brass sections, and the classic cheesy keyboard that defines the 2-Tone label. This album perfectly portrays the attitude to life in Britain at the time. The album starts with ‘Enjoy Yourself’ and is initially an upbeat and cheerful song. The album also ends with the same song, and the contrast between the two versions accurately depicts the fact that life in Britain was not very fun at this time. ‘Stereotypes’ and ‘Do Nothing’ were both released as singles and climbed to no. 6 and no. 4 respectively. ‘International Jet Set’ creates a claustrophobic nightmarish story that finishes with the screams of the passengers as their plane crashes. ‘Hey, Little Rich Girl’ tells the story of a young girl who moves to London with high hopes of success but ends up making porn movies. My personal favourite song has to be ‘Stereotypes’, the second part of this song has a strong dub influence and is self-indulgent. ‘Sock it To ‘Em J.B.’ and ‘Holiday Fortnight’ are both fillers, yet I still very much enjoy both tracks. The original version of ‘Sock It To ‘Em’ is a classic to me, and I feel that The Specials do this song justice. To me this is the best album that The Specials released, as it was the last time that the trio were still together.

To my fellow Specials fans: I can’t seem to find any info on the new cover photo on this re-issue. If anyone can clue me in or point me in the direction to find out, I’d be grateful.
