The Specials - Live From Down Under

thanks to camden dave for this.its (12 songs only,sorry!) recorded at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney a few days ago as part of the specials ongoing tour of world domination, er.... i mean the 30th anniversary tour and a mighty fine listen it is.some of the songs sound better than others with man at c+a being a particularly fine rendition.i can only assume its because the taper had to keep moving about or something.anyway who cares?its a really nice job and im hoping that the rest of the set will arrive soon.actually camden said that hopefully by wednesday there should be more from this gig and hopefully a decent recording from birmingham as well should be up and thats something to look forward now its time to put on your skanking trousers,play this one loud,dance and enjoy yourselves then leave a comment.thanks!

Wow that was fast!
Great work 'gobshyte', I was at that gig. Front row and centre!!!
Only the barrier and the bald headed bouncer between me and a stage invasion (I was really tempted by the 3rd encore song!!!)
Any way... thanks heaps.
Oh, and here's a link to my Flickr photo page with gteat vantage point shots of the show. Unfortunately I only had my 2.0 megapixel mobile phone camera.
You can utilise any of the images if you wish (no copyright!!)

Great. Always nice to hear something Special. Did you get anymore from T in the park? I've been holding out and checking every couple of days, becoming impatient like a five year old now... "Are we there yet". Keep it up geezer, much appreciated.

Hello again 'gobshyte'. Actually I was at the gig on the next night... the 28th of July (so I can't hear myself singing alongafter all!!!) LOL
I do hope you get the rest of this gig though.
I've made a cover which has images from the Enmore gig. You can use it if you wish when you get the full set.
The rapidshare link is:
Have you looked at my photos yet? You will see a photo of the set list that I was handed (if you want to rearrange the songs in their correct order).
Many regards again
