My presence would be for a 3rd of s/t.
...and what about your preference? ;)
My preference is a better spellchecker on my phone :angry:

I guess that would be the obvious 3rd track but be nice to have one of the album tracks?

A dub of Concrete Jungle would be awesome.

Yeah that would be my choice as it is one of my favourite tracks.

Further to my RSD post The Specials are releasing a 10” single of 3 previously unreleased dub recordings!!!
I understand one is Stereotypes (which would make sense) and suspect another is Too Much Too Young.
Jerry played it recently when DJ’ing at a Madness gig and claimed to have just found the dub plate.
No idea on the 3rd one, Sock It To Em JB and Rat Race dub versions have already been released.
Let me know if you need any help locating a copy 101w, as per last year.
Hopefully though you can find it domestically - UK postage costs to overseas are crippling these days.

Cheers John, waiting to hear more details as I did hear a rumour the 10” came with a reissue of This Are 2 Tone album which may be a US only release???
Hopefully that isn’t the case although I will buy the lot anyway.

Have they previously released a dub Why?
Wasn’t the Stereotypical version just an extended version?
The dubs were all done back in the day not recent.

The three tracks I included on the "Even More Specials" comp "96 Tears", "Why? (Pt. II)", "Why? (Dub)" were all given away as free downloads on their web site a few years back. So not had a physical release. But it's not exactly new to us.

All I know is that it is 3 tracks not previously ‘released’.

I am probably the only one that cares but the release will significantly have the catalogue number CHSTT33.
