From Everything.Sucks

The Specials, also known as The Special AKA, are an English 2 Tone and ska revival band formed in 1977 in Coventry. After some early changes, the first stable lineup of the group consisted of Terry Hall and Neville Staple on vocals, Lynval Golding and Roddy Radiation on guitars, Horace Panter on bass, Jerry Dammers on keyboards, John Bradbury on drums, and Dick Cuthell and Rico Rodriguez on horns.

Stuart Derdeyn's review of the band's album of covers pans it as "Wretched [Today's Specials], and an embarrassment to a great band's legacy...makes me wonder how it's possible that the same band -- minus their real creative force, Jerry Dammers -- could be responsible for this tired, lame bit of second-rate bar-band-by-numbers disc. It sucks."
