Ghost Town (40th Anniversary Half Speed Master): Vinyl 12" Single
The Specials are one of the defining bands of the late '70s/early '80s, combining Jamaican ska and Rocksteady with the energy of punk and launching a whole Ska Revival which paved the way for fellow likeminded bands Madness, The Beat and The Selecter to release their first singles. Having had seven top 10 singles and two Gold albums over the course of two years, the band released Jerry Dammers' 'Ghost Town' in June 1981, backed by Lynval Goldings' 'Why?' and the Terry Hall-penned 'Friday Night, Saturday Morning'. This 40th Anniversary Edition has been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the original production tapes for optimum audio quality.
