The Specials’ Ghost Town producer John Collins talks about how the job came his way, and the process he used to get the bleak, classic sound of the number hit. He also talks about John Peel’s role in John becoming the band’s producer, how the rise of social violence at the time affected sales, and how the changes in the industry stopped him from producing more hits for others artists.
