Post subject: The Specials: Live Recordings 1979-???? (From a Fan To Fans) Reply with quote

Hello, so i'm going to share with all of you recordings that I found through the internet. I found them around 2011 the majority of this for FREE.

Awesome artwork parkedcars, thank you.
If you have more add them please Very Happy

3 albums are up
Idea 1980-01-21 Paradiso, Amsterdam
21 tracks in FLAC format for the better quality possible, Sourced from soundboard. awesome performance by the band. Includes the cover "Madness"

Idea 1980-05-25 King Biscuit Flower Hour
Six song from this program, mp3 files. Not sure the date or venue but the info that I get this was broadcast 05-25-1980.


Idea 1980-05-26 Pinkpop Festival
8 tracks but 7 has +A quality. For some reason there are only avaiable 7 of this show. In a interview for the documentary of Pinkpop of that year Sir Horace said they rehelsed the old set, even Too Hot is not after Stupid Marriage and Rat Race. So probably there could be more songs. About the last track (Youre wondering now) has low quality, i remember i get as an "bonus track" from other recording and judding by the sound of the organ I asume this is from pinkpop[/b]

after a lot of days off im back again with 3 new albums and 1 by parkedcars

Arrow 1980-02-09 The Whisky, West Hollywood by parkedcars
shared on this theard by parkedcars. great quality audio recorded from audience and you can feel the energy of the band.

Arrow 1980-02-14 U.C. Davis California
sourced from soundboard so you can hear very clear the instruments. long time ago I removed the "hiss" of the cassette, sometimes you will hear a poor audio while the crowd was screaming, but very enjoyable. The playlist starts with Monkey Man so at least 3 songs are missing from the start and theres no "youre wondering now" so 4 songs are missing from this show.

Arrow 1980-03-02 Speaks, Long Island, New York
one of my favorites recordins due to be a audience recording, I feel the energy of the band and all of the people who been there at that show, everyone screaming and clapping. The people at the end of youre wondering sang along while clapping for 2 minutes, the band returned to play Man From Warrica and Monkey Man. trust me, one of the best shows recorded Cool

Arrow 1997-12-07 San Fransisco
Sourced from soundboard, 8 songs of this show... maybe was cut. Dont Call Me Names, It's You and Bonediggin' are included on this recording.
