Look at baseball players pre-1960s. Rookies look 30 years old and afflicted with a terminal disease.

If you told me Babe Ruth was born 48 years old, I’d believe you.

Seriously. It's striking how much we've retained youthfulness over the past fifty years.

Has anyone got the 40th anniversary version of The Specials on vinyl?
Thinking of upgrading my original copy which is 40 years old but was wondering if it is worth going for the new version?

The 40th anniversary has been cut as a half speed master and is on two vinyl discs making it a double album. This will mean the grooves will be bigger. I have not heard it but I expect it to sound the bollocks.

Clashing check patterns is a serious fashion faux pas.

Faux ska.

Yep 2 Tone was about style and they always looked great, but this is so wrong.

2 Tone is about to turn 40. This is a thing of beauty and great to see Jerry Dammers involved.
I don’t need it but I can’t resist it.

Just got an email to ask if I still want it as there is no anticipated delivery date yet!!
I am wondering if they need a certain amount of orders before they put the orders in????

Because no one likes Two-Tone. Itll be very popular and I expect there'll be an allotted amount for each seller at first.
