General Public

They were never going to be as cool as THE BEAT (or THE ENGLISH BEAT as they were known here in the US) But General Public still had a little bit of that 2-tone reggae beat. Especially the final track from their debute LP ALL THE RAGE.

This is the special 12-inch mix of "GENERAL PUBLIC" 12-inch version (MP3). To me this kicks the ass of the LP version. From the opening organ riff to the dub breakdown in the middle. This is truely a lost classic that deserves another listen. It wasn't all Tenderness you know.
