The Beat - The Complete Studio Recordings (Edsel), Limited Edition Box set to be released on 12th May

The Beat was formed in Birmingham in 1979, with members Dave Wakeling (vocals, guitar), Ranking Roger (vocals, toasting), Andy Cox (guitar), Everett Morton (drums), David Steele (bass) and veteran Jamaican saxophonist Saxa.

An important part of the whole 2-Tone movement, the band hit immediately with their version of "Tears Of A Clown", and followed it with three huge hit albums and a further twelve hit singles, all included in this 4 CD clamshell box set.

Songs like "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off...She's Mine", "Doors Of Your Heart" and "Save It For Later" remain radio favourites to this day. Also included on the bonus CD are seven special dub remixes and an annotated booklet.
