A seminal album if there ever were one, The Specials was released in 1979 on the now-legendary 2 Tone label. It’s charting of the disaffected youth of the time has become the stuff of legend through tracks like ‘Too Much Too Young’ and ‘A Message To You, Rudy’, popularised further still by the streams of films on Thatcherite Britain that so often use this as it’s soundtrack. The Specials 40th Anniversary has been remastered from the original tapes and cut at half-speed for optimal sound quality.
