The Specials - Glasgow April 2009

ok to those of you who havent downloaded this already you may need to download all 3 links(the second two are quite small so dont worry!)and then cut and paste the incomplete files.i dont know why this happened so hopefully doing it this way will sort it.cheers
first off thanks to madphil for the headsup on this one and to camden dave for the technical bits and pieces and to the recorder of this gig (whoever he or she may be!).this is a great quality audience recording of the specials very recent glasgow gig.24 tracks of moonstomping ska for you all to enjoy.i dont really need to say anything else for this except enjoy yourselves then leave a comment.thanks!
p.s apparently some people have had a few problems with 3 of the tracks,so i ripped the offending 3 tracks again for you.ive checked these ones by downloading myself and they all worked fine for me.sorry for the inconvenience.cheers!new link below
ok this is weird.i dont know why this is happening but 2 more songs have had problems here they are for you to download.if anyone would just like me to re-up the whole show instead just let me know.thanks very much and once again i apologise for any problems you may have experienced whilst flying Air Muebles.

Live from The Roxy

on a recent trip to the 'record and tape exchange' in londons berwick street i got this brilliant live compilation cd for £2.its a great quality live compilation taken from previous roxy compilation albums and other live roxy club recordings by some of the artists.the sound on it is very good indeed and features an interesting drum intro to 'oh bondage up yours' and a fantastic version of 'smash it up'.so its a great listen and a great piece of punk history.i didnt scan the cover so i borrowed this one from the interweb.anyhoo play this loud,pogo,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
