The Specials are an English 2 Tone and ska revival band formed in 1977 in Coventry. In 1980, the song "Too Much Too Young", the lead track on their The Specials AKA Live! EP, reached No. 1 in the UK, with the unemployment-themed single "Ghost Town" also hit No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1981.

In May 1979, the day before the British general elections that saw Margaret Thatcher come to power, The Specials played a set at the Moonlight Club in Hampstead, London. Reportedly secretly recorded by Decca Records, who had an office next to the Moonlight Club, it made its way to the bootleggers and wasn't officially released until 1992, through Chrysalis Records. The Specials mixed punk with Jamaican music to produce arguably the definitive soundtrack of Britain on the cusp of the 80s. The live album contains reggae classics such as Toots & The Maytals 'Monkey Man' and The Pioneers 'Long Shot Kick De Bucket'.
