Nights At The Roundtable - Madness In Session - 1979

Nights at the Roundtable featuring Madness, recorded in session at the BBC for the John Peel Program, August 14, 1979


Jumping back into our Ska Revival this week with another of the Two-Tone Immortals, Madness.

You probably could have labeled this band Ska-lite, as they shied away from the heavier social/racial aspects of the Reggae/Ska movement in favor of more upbeat off-the-wall humor with their songs and performances.

Still, a great band who won enormous popularity over here as well as the rest of the world in the late 1970's through early 80's.

Tonight it's a session they recorded at The BBC for The John Peel Program(me) on August 14, 1979.

Here's what they do:

1. The Prince
2. Bed & Breakfast Man
3. Stepping Into Line

In answer to your requests. BTW - working on some live Bad Manners for tomorrow, but may have to just rely on an lp instead.

Stay tuned.
