This is a truly wonderful gem by some of the former musicians from the seminal 80's SKA band "The Specials". I used to have it on vinyl, wore it out, and now I'm buying the CD. The highlights on the album have to be "Free Nelson Mandela", written while he was still jailed in SA - exhuberant, and although in a SKA guise, with the same emotional context as South African township music - protest music that will move your feet and your heart and will run continually in your head when it's not on your headphones. The rest of the album is haunting. "Racist Friend" and "Alcohol" in particular are great songs. If "More Specials" the second Specials album made any impression on you, then this is worth sitting on your CD shelf alongside it.
