Not just saying this but without your guitar sound weaving through the songs its not The Specials, obviously its the same with other members of the band but you imo have always given the songs that edge. I must admit i do prefer Terry on Concrete Jungle not that yours is bad or anything far from it. I would also say that imo what would be good is for the band to alter things (in the way Jerry did with his playing) like having you or Neville taking lead on songs that you wouldn't usually do or haven't done before.

I have a theory... it depends on whether you bought Dance Craze first with Terrys vocal on Concrete or the 1st Album with my vocal version? But Arnold Chicken Shorts it! what does it matter? .. its the way things were done that really Sir Sydney Shelf Stackered me off!
Well i used to go see the Cov Automatics b4 i joined cause my mate Tim Strickland sang lead, then he was replaced byTerry... i joined and sang Concrete Jungle + another song of mine Lorriane up until Nevelle joined which is when i was raligated too just lead guitar for some reason? Jerry told Elvis Costello i originally wrote ,n, sang it and for some reason i was allowed too sing it on the first Album..
I must admit for years i didn't know who sang "Concrete Jungle" on the LP, i think i thought it might've been Elvis Costello lol, i was young. I think it was the Peel session version of the song i listened to most but in any case whoever sings it, its one of my favourite Specials songs i think it should've been a single.
so whats happening with the specials roddy??whats the normal delivery time when you order cd's via the website??willo got me one of them pics from the specialized weekender,very mean'moody pose roddy!!!
The Specials ? Ill send off any merch orders tomorrow morning* Actually Chysalis wanted too release Concrete Jungle as a single... imagine how differant my career may of been if i had got too mime it on "Top of the POPS"? BUT AS RICK ROGERS SPECIALS ORIGINAL MANAGER ONCE SAID TOO ME... "COULD YOU OF HANDLED BEING TERRY HALL"? Probably not...
