A ‘double-header’ 7” single on the infamous red and white Island label.A-side: ’10 Commandments’ – this track taken from The Specials new album ‘Encore’ features guest vocals from Saffiyah Khan who famously intervened as members of the English Defence League attempted to intimidate local women during an intense demo in Birmingham in 2017. The story went viral and Saffiyah, who was sporting a Specials T-shirt that fateful day, was rightly applauded. Whilst 10 Commandments takes its lead from Prince Buster’s original, it transports listeners to somewhere very different. AA-side: ‘You’re Wondering Now’ live at V festival 2009. As the recently reformed Specials performed on stage in the late afternoon sun, long-time fan Amy Winehouse stood watching in the wings before asking if she could join them for an impromptu sing along. They obliged and a beautiful thing, captured here happened. Please note royalties from this release of this track will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
