"The Best Of The Specials And Fun Boy Three"


The album inclides ska classics such as,
-Ghost Town (which hit number one in 1981)
-A message to you rudy
-Our lips are sealed
-Gangsters

The specials were an English ska band formed in coventry 1977. The members were,

Jerry Dammers
Terry hall
Neville Staples
Sir Horace Gentleman
Roddy Radiation
Lynval Golding
John Bradbury

Their debut LP was 'Specials-Too Much Too Young' which instantly hit number one in the UK. After their well known song ' Ghost Town' hit number one in 1981 Neville Staples, Lynval Golding and Terry Hall left the band and Stan Campbell joined.

In the 1980's Lynval Golding, Neville Staples and Terry Hall formed the band 'Fun Boy Three' they wrote hits such as 'Our Lips Are Sealed and The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum' which are both on the album tracks 12 and 15.

The specials songs have a funky , fast and fun beat and all use the trumpet and trombone whereas the Fun Boy Three sonds are more slow and dancy which gives the album a good range of genre.

What Songs Are On The Album?

1. our lips are sealed

2. Man at C&A

3. A Message To You Rudy

4. Rude Boys Outa Jail

5. Leave It Out

6. You're Wondering Now

7. Running Away

8. Ghost Town

9. T'aint What You Do It's The Way That You Do It

10. It's You

11. Gangsters

12. The Lunatics ( have taken over the asylum)

I recomend this album to anyone who likes ska, punk or 80's dance and i think its well worth paying for The specials are classics and should still be enjoyed by people for years to come.
