Hi mate, there are 32 releases on 2 Tone. I have them all. I can tell you anything you need to know. There are several that weren't very popular that's for sure, Swinging Cats TT 14 didn't sell partic

Went to the specials de montfort hall concert in 1980 think the bodysnatchers were on with them, what a night.😎

I thoroughly recommend this Two Tone website - so much information and so many label scans from around the world. They sound nearly as obsessive as us....Derek https://2-tone.info/index.html

Hi mate, there are 32 releases on 2 Tone. I have them all. I can tell you anything you need to know. There are several that weren't very popular that's for sure, Swinging Cats TT 14 didn't sell particularly well, but I like it. There are some rare ones like Elvis Costello (withdrawn), Ghost Town Revisited (TT 30 1991), 'Gangsters' on a silver moulded label and a few others. There's a few promos too, you'll see in the link below.

Here's a list of ALL the 45's...

On Friday (4th Sept) a box set is being released called Two Tone 'The Albums', it includes 8 cd's including Specials and More Specials, Too Much Pressure by The Selecter, That Man Is Forward and Jama Rico by Rico, In The Studio by The Special AKA and the compilation lp's Dance Craze and This Are Two Tone. It's on Amazon for £38.99, to me it's worth it just for the Rico cd's and the Dance Craze cd has the Madness tracks on them which were omitted from the US version cd because of legal reasons. This music got me into the scene and I haven't looked back, been on the punk, mod, skinhead, scooter, soul and blues scene ever since, even at 50 years old I keep buying the Docs and Harrington's, don't think I'll change now. 😎
