The Specials
The Specials 1979 debut album
40th anniversary edition - 2 LP 180g 45 rpm

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. Originally formed in 1977 as The Coventry Automatics, The Specials combined Jamaican ska and Rocksteady
mixed with the energy of punk and launched a whole Ska Revival which helped
fellow like-minded bands Madness, The Beat and The Selecter to release their
first singles. The Specials first single, ‘Gangsters’, was released in May 1979 with
independent distribution by Rough Trade and the initial pressing of just 5,000 records sold out. The band and label soon signed with Chrysalis Records who picked up on the release of ‘Gangsters.’ The next single, ‘A Message To You Rudy’, followed in September with their first album released soon after in October. This 40th Anniversary Edition of their debut album ‘Specials’ has been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the original production tapes. This edition has been split across 2x 12” vinyl at 45rpm for optimum audio quality. The Specials recently celebrated a UK Number One with their new album ‘Encore’ and are currently on a 40th Anniversary World Tour.
