Not sure if anyone noticed, not even Dermot at Chrysalis had until I told him, but...
The Specials are number one of the UK vinyl singles chart with Friday Night Saturday Morning this week and it is also number 3 in the physical singles chart too. Presumably the titles outselling it are available on CD and or tape? Ghost Town is also number 54 in this latter chart.
So that leaves the strange position that BOTH Ghost Town and its B side Friday Night Saturday Morning (instrumental) have been number one of the vinyl singles charts in the last 2 years.
I jokingly suggested to Dermot that he needs to release Why asa standalone single in Record Store Day next year to see if they can complete the Ghost Town hattrick.
