I saw this album when it came out & thought the cover was great, but never got around to actually listenening to it till recently.
Great album overall.
Quoted from o-din:
If you don't know The English Beat, then it's too late to teach ya! Dave Wakeling hung out with us at the bar in between sets while he was playing with General Public at China Beach in San Clemente. Real cool dude. I asked him where his partner Ranking Roger was. He said sulking back in England somewhere.
We knew them in Australia as "The British Beat" as per my original album I still have.
General public had a few good tracks on their first album too, the 2nd album was terrible.
