Tracklisting: TRACK LISTING Side A 1. Ghost Town (Extended Version) 2. Why? (Extended Version) Side B 1. Friday Night, Saturday Morning THE SPECIALS are one of the defining bands of the late 70's/early 80's along with Jerry Dammers iconic label Two Tone Records. They combined Jamaican ska and Rocksteady mixed with the energy of punk and launched a whole Ska Revival which paved the way for fellow likeminded bands Madness, The Beat and The Selecter to release their first singles. Having had seven top 10 singles and two Gold albums over the course of two years, the band released Jerry Dammers' Ghost Town in June 1981, backed by Lynval Goldings' Why? and the Terry Hall penned Friday Night Saturday Morning. The beginnings of the song were written around the closure of the Larcano dancehall in Coventry, but also reflecting what was happening in other towns and cities with urban decay, unemployment and ongoing racial tensions of the period. Themes which are still relevant today. The single, which was recently voted the second greatest UK single of all time by Alexis Petridis in the Guardian, reached Number One in the UK singles charts and stayed there for a further 3 weeks, becoming one of the biggest selling singles of 1981 and has remained one of the classic UK singles of all. This 40th Anniversary Edition has been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the original production tapes for optimum audio quality.
THE SPECIAL AKA What I Like Most About You Is Your Girlfriend (1984 UK 2-track 12" single featuring the Extended Version plus Can't Get A Break - Extended Version. Housed in picture sleeve which has very little wear with the vinyl in near mintcondition CHSTT1227)

  • Selling to us is easier than selling it yourself – If you have a collection of 30 records, that would be 30 different listings on Ebay, lots of questions to deal with, 20 different parcels to package (as at least 10 won't sell), dealing with items missing or damaged in the post and possible fraud. So often a daunting and time consuming task, it's much better to leave all that to us.
  • So if you want the best deal for your records, CDs or memorabilia, just call or email us today.
