This compilation stands out for featuring not just their "hits" but also b-sides, live tracks, and rarities. Of particular note is the inclusion of the powerful and dance-worthy anthem, "Free Nelson Mandela," recorded under the name the Special A.K.A. after the official demise of the Specials.
And the full version of "Ghost Town",a number one hit in Britain is still as mesmerizing and menacing as ever.
This CD is a wonderful mixture of songs that are simply fantastic to listen to combining socially conscious messages with jaunty, danceable melodies.
If you haven't tried Ska then this would be a very good place to start and at a ridiculously low price.
