The Specials is the debut album by British ska revival band The Specials. Released on 19 October 1979 on Jerry Dammers' 2 Tone label, the album is seen by some as the defining moment in the UK ska scene. Produced by Elvis Costello, the album captures the disaffection and anger felt by the youth of the UK's "concrete jungle"-a phrase borrowed from Bob Marley's 1972 album Catch a Fire but equally apposite used here to describe the grim, violent inner cities of 1970s Britain.

Embarrassed By You. The Specials. Vote For Me. Guilty 'Til Proved Innocent! The Specials. Or Less: The Specials Live. BBC in Concert (15 December 1979). Ghost Town - Greatest Hits. 2009 Re-Recorded, Remastered Versions. Relaxing & Romantic Pop Songs - Best Love Album.

Under the circumstances, the obvious thing for Hall, guitarist Lynval Golding and bassist Horace Panter to do would be to release an album in the image of the music that made the Specials’ famous: see, it wasn’t all Jerry, we can do it without him. If Encore scrupulously avoids the frantic ska-punk sound of their 1979 debut, there are certainly moments that feel like deliberate evocations of the band’s past. With its mournful trombone solo and tension-ratcheting pile-up of queasy jazz chords, single Vote for Me is hardly coy in its attempts to get the listener to think of Ghost Town. Encore is at its best when it leaves the Specials’ past behind and faces forward. A cover of the Equals’ Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys is a tip of the hat to Eddy Grant’s pioneering multiracial band, and unlike anything the Specials have released before, offering impressively taut funk in the place of Jamaican rhythms. There’s something appealingly odd about the music that supports Hall’s examination of his struggles with mental health on The Life and Times.

Related: In 1981, the Specials got in trouble for inciting a riot.

It was an utter revelation - except for anyone who had seen the band on-stage, for the album was at its core a studio recording of their live set, and at times even masquerades as a gig. There were some notable omissions: "Gangsters," for one, but that had already spun on 45, as well as the quartet of covers that would appear on their live Too Much Too Young EP in the new year.

The Specials, one of the most electrifying, influential and important bands of all time, follow the announcement of Encore, their first new album in 37 years, with the release of their new single ‘Vote For Me’ via UMC /Island Records. The song has just debuted on BBC Radio 1 on Steve Lamacq’s programme and you can hear it below  . Spearheading the British ska revival in the late 70s, The Specials embraced a multi-racial melting-pot that embodied more than just their ked 2-Tone label logos. Hailing from Coventry and dressed in pork-pie hats, mohair suits, Ben Sherman shirts and DMs, they hit the UK music scene hard.
