Backstage Weekend - The Specials, live at The Paris Theater, London - 1979.
Heading to 1979 tonight with a concert by The Specials, recorded live at the Paris Theater in London by the BBC.
One of the great turbo-charged bands of the 70's, The Specials were fantastic to see live, because you just couldn't catch the sheer energy on disc. The band broke up in 1981, but got back together in 2008 for a 30 year reunion tour and have been touring again this year. Although I would imagine not as frantic as they once were (aren't we all?). Here they are in their heyday with a great sounding concert.
