Ghost Town Live

5.0 out of 5 stars Dawning of a New Era 1 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
`Live at the Moonlight Club' was recorded, somewhat conservatively, at the Moonlight Club the day before the election which put Margret Thatcher into Downing Street which means it did have one good side, the introduction Terry Hall gives to `It's Up To You', `It's the eve of the election and it's up to you..'.

The set was recorded by Decca records who were located next door as all the concerts that month were for the bands to contribute a single track to a projected compilation album `Live at the Moonlight Club' which was eventually scrapped. The set was released as a bootleg weeks before the bands debut LP `Specials' was released and such was the anticipation for any Specials release that it was reviewed in some of the music press. It was so well received that when the LP proper was released it was compared to it unfavourably. Although I think it one of the best bootlegs I don't think it diminishes the `Specials' album any, that said when it was given its first legal release in 1992 I did take the day off to go buy it.

The debut album is very much the Specials recorded live in the studio so the arrangements of the tracks are very much the same as those here, the live LP is served better by having Terry Hall sing the classic `Concrete Jungle' rather than its author Roddy Radiation, and the extended `Too Much Too Dub' was perhaps an error of judgement. However the album proper is served by the inclusion of `Doesn't make it Alright' and `A Message to You, Rudy'. The version of `Monkey Man' on the album actually samples the introduction of the song recorded here. Take my advice, buy both.
