UB40 - (1982) - Live

I've posted this CD cos I think it's great. The sound UB40 have on this live recording from 1982 isn't your usual UB40 sound that your mother likes (you know, those sugary love ballads, sort of songs you can hear on the radio). Here they sound great and the songs deal with more political topics. It was interesting for me to find out that their name comes from an unemployment benefit claim form (UB40 = Unemployment Benefit, Form 40) since I always viewed them as just an ordinary mainstream reggae band whose music was only good for playing on hotel terraces to 40+ year old tourists. Once more, my thanx go to Vedran M. (Humanita Nova, RDK, etc.) for breaking that illusion and introducing me to this UB40 release.
