Rerecorded not remastered and no Terry Hall!

These are just a bunch of classics redone by Neville Staple and one or two of the original band members if that but not by Terry Hall who was the voice of the Specials. This album lacks all of what made the originals so memorable with Ghost Town in particular missing Terry’s haunting voice. These are nothing like the originals and I can think of a dozen other bands that have covered these songs and did a much better job of it then this latest attempt. Go buy the original!

Not the Specials - rerecordings. Who's the real Pink?

It is a shame that the legacy of the original Specials has descended into "who gets the rights to record now." No Terry Hall (the original singer), no Jerry Dammers (the mastermind of it all.) What you get is slavish copies of an old idea. Plus Bob Marley covers. Who wants hand-downs?


No Terry Hall. Not original recordings of Ghost Town, Message to Rudy, etc. I've heard cover bands that do more inspired versions of these songs. The one star is for the cover art.
