James Bond

This, the bands second single for the label was released to promote their debut album Too Much Pressure. The only 2 Tone band not to have a brass section used session sax player Joe Reynolds for a brief solo during the track, a track which by no coincidence clocked in at exactly three minutes long. It got an average review from the critics and had the lowest chart position for the label since The Prince with both reaching number 16 in the national chart. For the singles B side the band strayed away from the labels tradition of covering old ska and reggae tracks and opted for a version the James Bond theme.
