Interesting choices mate- Ive heard the Johnny too bad demo
Youre Wondering Now is another of my faves- spot on there.
Chell Heath- What a tune!- A Modern classic .
"Sweet Revenge"- Like to hear that.
Thought Man With No Name may have been on there.? Must admit the Raiders were raunchy sounding- proper rockers type- "Allday and all of the night" is a good example.
Fantasize- sounds very "Stereotype-ish" - was that the producer wanting to create an original Specials sound you once mentioned? I find that some tracks on "Guilty" have a hint of "More Specials"about them
1."Chell Heath" with the rough kutzs was great fun to play and a fine bunch of lads. 2."Desire" bonediggers version, great slap bass sammy! 3."Somebody got murdered" specials m.k 2. i did it in a sorta big audio dynamite way - vietnam film score? 4."back in the u.s.s.r" Mcartneys wee wee take of the beach boys wee wee take of chuck berry! a must if way play moscow this year. 5. "johnny too bad" me ,n, nevelle demo,ed it for the todays special c.d but ali campbell had just covered the song and as it was his label it was a no no. 6. "oil in my lamp" a pleasure to work with mr dekker even tho he wouldnt speak to me. 7."bad moon rising" me and lynval are big creedece fans, did this live with the tearjerkers. 8. "fantazise" adam "prince beaver" birch mastubation epic! great music-tragic lyrics. 9."youre wondering now" always loved this lament, old time church stuff. 10."sweet revenge" recorded just before the original specials split, still waiting for lynval to give me a copy!! twenty five years and counting!!
I know this is quite an old thread but are their any songs that you have played on that you would like another crack at because you would do it differently this time?
I herd all those tracks except 1,7,10 I really like somebody got murdered one of the best tracks from Today's Specials. and Back in the u.s.s.r is a Killer track. I have a few other Rare tracks listed below which are all Excellent tunes. which haven't been released as far as I know can you shed any more light ? Happy Birthday on the 5/5 by the way just incase I forget.
All the best
All day and all of the night nervous breakdown Proud Mary Mona
Ive got a reggae dub version of Desire ild like to do soon* Always loved the Kinks - All day etc.. Nervous Breakdown, an Eddie Cochran song that doesnt get covered often used to play it in the Tearjerkers and do it sans guitar so i could wiggle more. Proud Mary. Mr Foggerty what a voice so much gravel and power! Ramona? my mate Neil Hunter wrote it about Ramona from the Modettes-nice bit of rock,n,roll.
