Post subject: Invite Rhoda for the duets please Reply with quote



I reckon it would be really nice if The Specials invited Rhoda along on the 2011 tour to sing the duets from More Specials with Terry, the same as they did on the 1980/81 tours.

The duets from More Specials were neglected from the 30th Anniversary tour and I, for one, would love to hear them performed again and who better to do it than Rhoda?

I know we all love the original songs they did on the 30th Anniversary tour but if they want to shake it up a bit and have a slightly different setlist on the 2011 tour, then this would be one way to go. Anyone else agree?

I absolutely agree. I reckon she'd get an amazing response from the audience and really bring some of those songs back to life.

They'd be daft not to really.

I hope they don't get anyone else to do it!

i like the idea aswell, but if they cant get rhoda for the whole tour then different special guests, like pauline, lilly, imelda, amy would be quite good,

lets be honest the set list needs a bit of a shake up, so the 2 songs from more specials, especially pearls cafe should be performed.
i think the ladys would relish shouting, its all a load of bollocks to a live audiance.

I've always been a fan. My friend Paul Speare (who played penny whistle on Nelson Mandela) was talking about her recently saying she was an absolute pleasure to be around and a joy to work with etc

Who knew? - we all pretend It was 'Just the music' - but It was our way to press back - and try for a future where we could be one.
Rhoda and Pauline - phew! what beautiful ladies. If I ever could see them with The Specials - then that's all I would ever ask for.............

I also agree Rhoda is a Wonderful person I only met her once but she was very nice I even stole a kiss Very Happy I heard I can't Stand It has been dropped from the set but I don't know how true this information is ? if Rhoda can't make it maybe Lily Allen could fill her shoes. Lynval Golding did mention that their would be a few Surprises on the next tour could be the return of Prodigal Son, Rico Smile

It would be great to get Rhoda to perform on the tour. And if they could get Rico and Dick to play as well that would be fantastic.

...Or maybe the suprise is Jerry jumping out of the cake, Nanker mentions!

Chemode, with regards to a Rhoda and Pauline duet - they have performed together along with Jennie Bellestar as The Ska Divas and Rhoda also toured with The Selecter and performed 007, Let's Do Rocksteady, Easy Life, too Experienced, Ruder Than You and Racist Friend with them. It would be good to hear them do a new song together, though.
