thought i read somewhere that lynval said that all the songs on the reunion tours had to be played so that they sounded like the recorded versions because thats what the fans want to hear,i guess that goes for everything except concrete jungle then,you might as well have played all the tracks that you wrote on guilty till proved innocent and let someone else sing them as well,have an easy night and take the money and run!!!
Part of the re-union carrot was i was offered the vocal as i sang it on the Album.. I brought the song too the band from my punk group the Wild Boys for Christ sake.. The Specials never sounded like the albums live.. why because it was live!
