The Beat – Tears Of A Clown (7″)


From 1979, on crispy vinyl we have this 2 Tone Classic from The Beat.

Covered from Smokey Robinson & The Miracles 1967 original, as a kid I just thought they had did it!!

It seems timeless, given a ska work over! “Rankin Full Stop”, the flipside gets my vote as a neglected B-side. Skaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
