The UK's multiracial DIY music scene of the turn of the '80s--led by The Specials, the English Beat, The Selecter, Madness, and Bad Manners--fused the working class energies of punk rock and early reggae, and remains enduringly popular and relevant today. "Too Much Pressure" is arguably its finest single document, thanks in large part to the commanding presence of lead vocalist Pauline Black.

This edition comes in a box with two CDs' worth of bonus material, including one disc of singles, outtakes, and Peel Sessions recordings, and a disc of live recordings from the early days of the Two-tone scene.
