It's about time, 19 Dec. 2002
As an American who just discovered the magic of the Specials, I needed a fix. It was really frustrating to find out that Too Much Pressure was out of print, so I looked for about 6 months to find it at some American online store. Then, a friend suggested that I go to the UK Amazon page and I found it instantly. As for the music itself, I don't think it measures up to the Specials' debut LP, but it's still great and it belongs in the collection of any ska fan. It's a shame that no American company seems to want to release this, but you Brits have always had better musical taste anyway. (Well, except for hip-hop.) Anyway, it's a good album. The label that reissued it sounds shady (Captain Mod?), but the liner notes and sound quality are quite a bit better than I expected. If you've waited for this album as I have, this version will satisfy.
And if you're an American who's been searching for this album just as I was, don't worry -- it ships fast, even from the UK.
