2 Tone Records was an English record label that mostly released ska and reggae influenced music with a punk rock and pop music overtone. Jerry Dammers of the ska revival band The Specials started the record label in 1979. It spawned the 2 Tone music and cultural movement, which was popular among skinheads, rudies and some mod revivalists. The label stopped operating in 1986.

The Specials. They look like a bunch of young men you would not like to me meet in a forgotten alley way.

The 50 Most Stylish Musicians of the Last 50 Years

The first LP I ever bought, way back in 1981. I remember getting the bus to town, going into Woolworths and handing over my hard earned money. I got home and placed my pride and joy on my very cheap and tacky Fidelity HF42 Portable Record Player. I may have only been eleven but in my eyes I became a man that day. I must climb into my parents attic and see if I still have it, Coz the newer CD version just doesn't sound the same. but I'm probably biased. Where did the Years go?
