Ghost Town tops chart of Coventry songs
Jerry Dammers, a founding member of The Specials and writer of Ghost Town said, “Thank you very much to everyone who voted for Ghost Town as the best record to come from Coventry. I really do appreciate that, it means a lot to me. It's a shame it had to come from the bad situation of unemployment all over the UK and let's hope we don't return to that situation again.”
