GIFTED: SKA Tribute to THE JAM vinyl is SOLD OUT. Proceeds benefit the UK SPECIALIZED Teenage Cancer Trust!

PLEASE CHECK WITH UK SPECIALIZED website for availability – we are now SOLD OUT! As you already know JUMP UP has been working with SPECIALIZED UK since 2012, releasing limited edition vinyl singles to compliment their incredible  tribute CDs – with proceeds benefiting the Teenage Cancer Trust. Multi-CD tribute albums of THE SPECIALS, THE BEAT, MADNESS, THE CLASH, and BOB MARLEY have been released with JUMP UP issuing 10 limited edition 7″ singles from these collections. We even did a cassette tape edition of their DANCE CRAZE tribute! In 2017 the Specialized team released GIFTED, a four CD collection of bands covering mod revival legends THE JAM. Obviously, this collection was an immediate success because Paul Weller is a god across the British Empire! As you would expect, this collection was less ska/reggae based, but when we heard the fantastic ska/reggae tunes that DID appear we thought to ourselves….let’s do a full length colored vinyl LP. But we didn’t stop there – we made beautiful woven patches AND drink coasters to accompany the album. Limited edition of 250, currently available on red and white vinyl.
