The Specials – Ghost Town (Extended Version) (German 12″)

“Ghost Town” is a Classic , apocalyptic as “Lunatics..” but still memorable, Dammer’s finest hour produced by John Collins from ’81. The 12″ featuring that rasping trombone solo. Captures the mood of the era perfectly.

Two super and very relevant B-sides. “Why” deals with the racism of the early 80’s. A deviant message just asking why. Lynval Golding right on the money.

A personal favourite , sang by Hall is “Friday Night and Saturday Morning” , what the weekend was like back then with hilarious, but accurate, lyrics.
