I'm blogging about the things I love: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. I’ve written a novel called “The Decision”, a futuristic political thriller, and first of a trilogy. I’m also the author of a book on music since the 1970s called “ I Was There - A Musical Journey” and a volume of poetry about youth, “Growin’ Up - Snapshots/ Fragments”. All available on Amazon and Kindle.
Some of us had two songs for him (the studio version was released in 1987 I think)
Er, go to 3 minutes 17 seconds in the video
Nice one. (Went to 3.17 as instructed!)
Lovely tribute, John! I am ashamed I don’t know this song I have just listened to!
Thanks Resa. The Specials were a pretty British thing, and late seventies/early eighties, so it wouldn’t necessarily have travelled much beyond our shores. Especially as the original band had broken up by the time of “Free Nelson Mandela”.
