The Specials released "Gangsters" and made
their success on the
U.K. music scene. Between the years of 1979 and 1981, The Specials had
seven top ten singles as well as two top five albums. The Specials also
formed their own record label which is named 2 Tone Records.
Terry, Neville, and Lynval left the Specials
to form Fun Boy Three.
Soon after those three left Roddy left to form his own band called Roddy
Radiation and the Tearjerkers. This is when Jerry, Brad, and Horace kept the
original sound with the name Special AKA. They got new band members and
got special guests to fill in the gaps to record the album In The Studio.
The Specials have gathered loyal and supportive
fans. They have
never reached the popularity and commercial success that they recieved in
the UK. Many of their singles were never released as singles in the US, they
have only appeared as album tracks.

"The Specials: The Singles Collection"(1991).

I have finally gotten around to redoing
this page. I was prompted by
the fact that I found these awesome backgrounds and stuff. I love
them. I hope that you find this page looking cleaner and better. I am
on ethernet but I havent gotten around to research what I was wanting
to do over the summer. But, I shall get around sometime, I promise.
In the meantime, enjoy, I have to get my brother to send me the scans
of the autographs of the Specials and other scans I have at home. Life
is a bitch when you go to school away from home ;)
