***************** 
I took a wee fancy last night to listening to the three albums from The Beat (or The English Beat as they were/are known as in the USA). Then I couldn't decide which one to post about because they all have some nice touches to them and so I decided for better or worse I'd post all three!

As you are aware there are two versions of The Beat going around: The Beat feat. Ranking Roger in the UK and The English Beat with Dave Wakeling in the USA.

Today The Beat featuring Ranking Roger release a brand new album entitled Bounce.





The English Beat with Dave Wakeling are almost at an end of their UK tour with a just a few more dates to go in October.
In 2017 they are planning on releasing a brand new album Here We Go Love that was made via a Pledge Music Campaign.
