I absolutely love the songs Silent Witness and Don't Do The Crime. The lyrics are typically awesome UB40 but it's Ali's voice that stands out. I would love to see Ali perform them live though like Derek I'm not sure he could sing them that way anymore. A gig where we as fans get to vote on which tracks the UB's play would be awesome....in fact I've done a survey in my fanzine....one song from each album....the current set list would be....
1 I think it's going to rain
2 Present Arms
3 Love Is All
4 Many Rivers To Cross
5 I'm Not Fooled
6 Don't Break My Heart
7 You Could Meet Somebody
8 I Would Do For You
9 Kingston Town
10 Bring Me Your Cup
11 Guns In The Ghetto
12 Come Back Darling
Most people's favourite intro seems to be Nkomo A GoGo and encore would be Legalise It. Sounds brilliant to me, anyone agree ????

I Agree totally Robert,

but i would have to add in "where did i go wrong" as well.

any 1 else wanna add to it.........

It would be great to hear some of the old tunes live again but they have to play new stuff to promote a current album and also the more popular songs to please the fans.

trina, i personally would choose where did i go wrong from the ub40 album as it's one of my fave ub tracks.

biglove steve
