Comments for the album Specials by The Specials:
The sound of late 70's Britain.
If you want to know what it was like growing up in Britain in the late 70s early 80s, this album paints a clear picture of some of the aspects of city life. I never went to see them when they played the Caird Hall in Dundee and I regret it.
Possible the best example of ska ever. The Specials bridged the gap between the raw energy of 70s punk and the energetic vibe of what would become 80s ska. The Specials had a great musical engine but also provided a social commentary different from many of the bands at the time. You can here some touches of their influence in punk that came later and more obviously in the new wave ska to follow.
Classic Ska but with the anger of punk. Social injustice drips out of every song... a fantastic album. 'You're wondering now' will serenade me into my grave!
