THE BEST LIVE recording of The Specials
Pamela | Connecticut, USA | 12/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The tracks of The Selector are not all that good. "Too much pressure" is OK, but the rest are indicative of a band that never jelled as a group.

But the second half of the disk...
This was the Specials at the very top of their game. A tight group that was still having fun onstage. This is a glimpse into one of the briefest windows of musical excellence; a year earlier, they were a bit sloppy. Shortly after this recording they began drifting apart. Terry sings "Concrete Jungle" here, making one wonder why he didn't on the LP. And "Long shot kick de bucket"/"Skinhead Moonstomp" is one of my fovorite moments in music; much better here than the 12" B-side version."
