This is one excellent sounding pressing-- and it benefits from being cranked up. Smooth and warm sounding. An excellent album by The Specials -- and who was expecting this after a 37 year absence? They're tapped into now, into today, into neo-Thatcherism-- and have kept their punk and ska sensibilities fully intact. Nice! BTW-- the vinyl is clean, flat and near silent. A superb pressing.

Liking Terry's presence on this collection. 'The Life and Times' is a very special Specials song. Great to find the original spark of creativity and politics returning in new forms 40 years later (even if tbh it does sounds too 'manicured' on some cuts). Now, can you all just have a coffee with Jerry?

40 years or so and the covers blank.
guess they didn't have time.
I got it how about a few white vinyl ones perhaps.. Ill support them by purchasing just because the download cant be spun holding the corners. records used to be more interesting, just observation not review 30 years from now ill remember what was happening when Encore was pressed.

Uh, so, what's with the 10 Commandments? Is this person in the Specials now? Weird thing about this song, it's like those people who post comments specifically stating how pointless and utterly useless the 'whatever' it is they're now expending effort to comment on. Up at 3am watching idiots whine on YouTube. Uh-huh, but you're the one who stayed up all night glued to a screen watching the idiots. Kinda begging the question.
