Save It for Later" released in April 1982, barely made the Top 50, "Jeanette," their new album's taster, just brushed Number 45, "I Confess" didn't even chart, probably because it's flip "Sole Salvation" was also culled off the album, while "Ackee 1 2 3" played outside the Top 50. The slippage had started with Wha'ppen, as the group had veered sharply away from their frenetic roots, Special Beat Service would take them even further from their early punk-fired fury

TITLE added to MP3 cart. Special Beat Service (Remastered). Exclusive Prime pricing. My original LP became warped so long ago, I can't really compare them. However, this is a great album and the extras are decent.
