    Amazon says The Cardigans vinyl is out 5th Feb? Is this right?
    HMV says 1st Feb but also they are sold out so not sure I trust HMV?

    Appallingly lazy LP cover from The Specials. Great single though!

  3. Jon says:

    Everyone seems perfectly content to forget that The Specials released an album of new material in 1998, “Guilty Till Proved Innocent”.

    Plus they released, what, four albums of covers between the early 90s and early 00s

  4. Glenn says:

    Related to The Specials release, last week The Beat feat. Ranking Roger released a new album, Public Confidential.

    B-sides and remixes set
    Live album from current tour
    Plays Well With Others Vol 2
    Blu-Ray box set with all the concert videos/DVD’s
    Promo videos set
    New album??

  6. Alan says:

    The Johnny Mathis CD apparently also has some bonus mixes which weren’t on the version in the box set.

  7. David Hannah says:

    The Johnny Mathis album was issued on LP last year by Sony for RSD

  8. Martin Dudley says:

    When six out of seven original members of The Specials got back together in 2009 it really was a big deal. Its a real shame that they didn’t produce any new music while Brad was alive and Roddy and Neville were in the band.
