Product Description & Reviews

Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label1982 Smash Propelled Two-Tone Ska Revivalists to Commercial Fame: Police, Jam, Specials Fans Need This LP Record Contains Irresistible Original Version of ''Save It For Later,'' Longtime Pearl Jam Concert StapleMastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI: Spaciousness Amidst Instruments, Midrange Dynamics Vastly ImprovedIn the early 1980s, many bands began borrowing styles initially made popular in other regions of the world, spicing their own sound up with exotic textures and foreign rhythms. Few groups perfected the mix-and-match hybrid with more everlasting appeal and contagious melodicism than The English Beat, a multi-cultural ensemble whose Special Beat Service dominated the charts, scored with the critics, and captivated listeners. Blending jazzy saxophones, pop hooks, calypso accents, firm beats, jangly guitars, and scores of other creative devices, the 1982 set has always been ripe for sonic restoration. Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, Silver Label numbered limited edition LP brings the music's colorful flair and cross-continental vibes to the fore, eliminating the haze and artificial ceilings that flaw previous pressings. The Caribbean flavors, dub pulses, and irresistible refrains now jump with palpable energy and feet-tapping verve. You'll be addicted as soon as the needle drops into the first grooves of the record.A feel-good set from start to finish, Special Beat Service bows down to the power of great pop. But within this framework, The English Beat weaves in brilliant threads of music plucked from Jamaica (reggae and dub), its native England (new wave and Merseybeat), and the United States (post-punk and Motown). While many recognize them as Two-Tone ska revivalists, the group's arrangements reach far beyond any label, a breadth immediately recognized on multifaceted tracks such as ''Sugar & S
