The Specials - Live in Seattle 1980

starting the proceedings today is another great bootleg from the muebles archives.this is the specials recorded live at the showbox venue in seattle.its a great quality audience recording which i believe was ripped from a cassette copy originally ( at least thats what camden dave told me! ) but its a great listen the jam the specials were always a great live band brimming with energy and this gig serves as a reminder of how great they here back in the day.listening to the opening chant from concrete jungle always reminds me of fights at school!oh happy you should know by know what you need to do and thats dust off your loafers and harringtons,play this little gem,enjoy,dance like you just dont care and then skank to the computer and be brave and leave a comment.thanks!

Thanks for posting all the hard to find Specials stuff.

Track 3, "It's Up To You", seems to be missing from the archive (I've downloaded it twice).

I hope it doesn't sound like a complaint, because it's definitively not one. Your blog is full of hidden treasures and is one of my favorites.

Thanks a lot for everything!
