AS WE CELEBRATE OUR HALF-CENTURY MILESTONE HERE AT CLASSIC POP, IT FEELS WHOLLY FITTING THAT WE MARK IT WITH WHAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A LANDMARK ALBUM. WHEN WE FIRST HEARD WHISPERS LAST AUTUMN THAT THE SPECIALS HAD RECONVENED IN THE STUDIO, WE WERE QUIETLY CONFIDENT THEY’D BE ABLE TO CRAFT A RECORD THAT COULD LIVE UP TO THEIR IMPRESSIVE LEGACY.

About Classic Pop

Issue 50 of Classic Pop is on sale now! For our 50th issue, we had to come up with something very special – and we certainly have… our cover stars this month are The Specials, hot on the heels of the release of their superb chart-topping album, Encore. Our must-read interview with the band delves into their remarkable comeback and the story behind their superb new record. We also catch up with the iconic Gloria Estefan who tells us how she brought Latin grooves to the world and Bonnie Tyler talks us through her new studio album, which features a hotly-anticipated duet with Sir Rod Stewart. 30 years on, we celebrate New Order’s Technique in our latest Classic Album feature and we also serve up a buyer’s guide to the blue-eyed soul of Simply Red. As Wet Wet Wet face the future without Marti Pellow, we meet the band as they embark on a fresh chapter with new frontman, The Voice winner Kevin Simm. Our packed new album reviews section features the wonderful return of Chaka Khan plus Dido, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Paul Weller. On the reissues front, we check out a must-have 10-CD Heaven 17 boxset plus re-releases from David Bowie, Sparks, Erasure and more. In our live reviews section, we elbow our way down to the front for Gary Numan and Echo & The Bunnymen at the Rockaway Beach Festival plus gigs by Chrvches and The Christians. Enjoy the issue!
