Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #163

August 17, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is The Specials by The Specials.

This album was released in 1979 on 2 Tone Records, even if you’re not familiar with the whole album, you will most definitely recognise some of the tracks, even if only the opening track A Message to You Rudy. This album encapsulates the best of British Ska, via reggae, soul and Jamaican Ska. A must have.
