To mark The Specials' upcoming appearance at the Hyde Park Olympic Games Concert on August 12th, alongside other British music greats, Blur and New Order, EMI will be releasing a live album, "More…Or Less. The Specials Live". The Specials' recent reformation, and sold out live shows, have refocussed the eyes of the world on the band who instigated the revolutionary 2-Tone movement, fusing punk and ska, uniting black and white, their thought provoking sentiment, in tracks such as "Ghost Town", as valid in these days of austerity and tension, as it ever was in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
This live album demonstrates this cultural relevance perfectly over its 26 tracks, selected by the band from recordings of their 2011 tour. The audience play a crucial role, singing on many of the tracks, which clearly still resonate with people worldwide. Find out how to win one of three, incredibly rare signed copies of the CD, exclusively through Fred Perry Subculture, here! "More…Or Less. The Specials Live" is released 6th August 2012.
