We are SO excited about the first vinyl picture disc in 37 years for Los Angeles ska/mod 80s legends!!! One of the most collectable bands of all time, their STIFF RECORDS UK picture discs were highlights of the 1980s!! JUMP UP, in collaboration with THE SPECIALIZED PROJECT UK, are proud to deliver the band’s first new recording in decades, a wonderful laid back mid-tempo summer reggae dancer – a version of the B.J THOMAS / BLUE SWEDE oldies radio hit “HOOKED ON A FEELING” (penned by MARK JAMES) complete with a dub on the flip! This 7 inch picture disc vinyl gem is limited to 750 copies, distributed in the UK officially by SPECIALIZED. Don’t delay, this one time press is a must have purchase for both 40+ year fans and newcomers alike. An essential DJ 45 that sounds incredible (was very surprised too) – that’s why it’s a selection for our 7 inch subscription club! A tad pricier due to production costs, please keep in mind proceeds are going to the UK charity plus is supporting one of the world’s most legendary ska bands of ALL TIME!
The wait is over! The SPECIALIZED Teenage Cancer Trust folks in the UK just released their BOSS 4xCD – a tribute to the original 60’s ska & reggae sounds. The Jump Up vinyl 7″ singles have JUST arrived – and we think this 4 song EP is absolutely brilliant!! One side is on a roots reggae Jamaican tip, while the other has a 2-TONE ska 80’s flair! Limited edition of 400 each and will go fast! FYI: these will be shooting across the pond and will arrive in the UK next week where they will be available on the Specialized website!
