Review of Nelson Mandela single by The Special AKA
Juke, 1984-06-02


The Special AKA "Nelson Mandela" (2-tone): produced by Mr Elvis Costello, this is a social comment song you can dance to. As it says on the cover notes, Mandela is a South African political prisoner whose sentence was life PLUS five years. Not good. But the record is, Elvis himself adding vocal support.
