Gifted a Tribute to The Jam Update

Thoughout 2017 we’ll be keeping you up to date with what’s happening with the creation of ‘Gifted – Tribute to The Jam’

On November 30th we announced our intention to compile Gifted, a Tribute to The Jam. Within the first eight hours of the announcement it became evident that we would have far more requests than we could accommodate. We were forced to close applications on December 1st, a mere 18 hours after the first announcement.


Since 2012, the Specialized Project has released five highly acclaimed tribute albums. We’ve celebrated The Specials, The Beat, Madness, The Clash and most recently Bob Marley. Once again, this album will boast 70 tracks presented to you in a beautifully designed four disc CD box-set.


Gifted will have a handful of regulars including; Big Fat Panda, Urang Matang, Rude Boy George and Swagga. Also appearing again will be Ed Rome, The Hotknives, The Amphetameanies and Laurel Aitken’s godsons of Ska The Pressure Tenants.


Among the bands making their Specialized debuts are two Mexican ska ensembles; Girls Go Ska and Los Chicklets. French modernist Popincourt and Finnish ska legends The Valkyrians. As well as Missing Andy, whose debut single “The Way We’re Made” reached number 38 on the UK Singles Chart and number 7 on the UK Indie Chart in 2010. We’ll also be introducing the swingstep producer known to many in Southwest UK as Doc Who.


Song allocations are still ongoing and this list will soon be much longer but so far the following will appear on Gifted
