A little Sunny Ska off the Mixing Desk – Two Classics from The Specials

Hi There – On this sunny muggy Tuesday…

This time off the mixing desk… The Specials famous encore song, originally by Toots and The Mayalls

Celebrating when Coventry Ruled the Music world, in the early 1980s

And their big hit that started it all Gangsters…

Gangsters was a cover of Al Capnoe By Prince Buster – part of the late 1960s Blue Beat… here’s the original You may not have heard of…

And MOnkey Man.. which was originally by Toots and The Mayalls…

which was more recently covered by Amy WineHouse – closer to the Toots original in key though with energy that is closer to the Specials version..
