Specials - Specials - EMI Millenium Specials - EMI Millenium
Pop Audiophile - LP MILL 99 EMI
New, Unplayed, Long Out Of Print UK Millennium Series 180gm Rarity. Analogue Cut From Analogue Master Tapes. “A Perfect Moment In Time Captured On Vinyl Forever, Such Is The Specials' Eponymous Debut Album; It Arrived In Shops In The Middle Of October 1979 And Soared Into The U.K. Top Five. It Was An Utter Revelation -- Except For Anyone Who Had Seen The Band On-Stage, For The Album Was At Its Core A Studio Recording Of Their Live Set. 14 Songs' Strong, Mostly Originals With A Few Covers Of Classics Thrown In For Good Measure. That Includes Their Fabulous Take On Dandy Livingstone's "A Message To You Rudy," An Equally Stellar Version Of The Maytals' "Monkey Man," And The Sizzling Take On Prince Buster's "Too Hot." If Those Were Fabulous, Their Own Compositions Were Magnificent. The Specials Managed To Distill All The Anger, Disenchantment, And Bitterness Of The Day Straight Into Their Music. The Vicious "Nite Klub" -- With Its Unforgettable Line, "All The Girls Are Slags And The Beer Tastes Just Like Piss" -- Perfectly Skewered Every Bad Night The Members Had Ever Spent Out On The Town; "Blank Expression" Extended The Misery Into Unwelcoming Pubs, While "Concrete Jungle" Moved The Action Onto The Streets, Capturing The Fear And Violence That Stalked The Inner Cities. And Then It Gets Personal. "It's Up To You" Throws Down The Gauntlets To Those Who Disliked The Group, Its Music, And Its Stance, While Simultaneously Acting As A Rallying Cry For Supporters. The Set Appropriately Ends With The Rocksteady-Esque Yearning Of "You're Wondering Now," The Song That Invariably Closed Their Live Shows.” Jo-An Greene, AMG.... more details
