Raquel

Released to promote the Dance Craze soundtrack. This was the only single from the album and is one of the rarest Specials singles in existence. The b-side Raquel was one of the songs the band had brought with them from the days of The Coventry Automatics and had previously remained unreleased. However, it did appear in the UK on a free cassette which was issued with a copy of the NME.

The track remained under wraps for over 20 years until the release of The Coventry Automatics demos, Dawning of a New Era on Receiver Records and finally appeared on the chequered label via The Compact 2 Tone Story box set.
