TVD Giveaway: The English Beat, Keep The Beat: The Very Best of The English Beat

We are such big fans of The English Beat that we thought our fellow big fans would love to get their hands on their newest “Best of” album — Keep The Beat: The Very Best of The English Beat — from Shout! Factory, even though it is (sadly) vinyl-deficient. In fact, this is our very first CD-only giveaway!

So here’s the low-down on your shot to win a free copy of this definitive collection.

On Day 2 of The English Beat Week, Dave talked about why he thinks the Keep The Beat: The Very Best of The English Beat sums up The English Beat best:

“What was interesting about The Beat was we had a number of different phases from the quite fast angry – not angry – but strident first album, to a more eclectic, introspective second album, to a sort of bold, brassy, pop third album.

So, this Keep The Beat: The Very Best of The English Beat record that Shout! Factory bringing out now, I’d say that’s the best because it would give a sample of the sort of different sides of us that we went through over the years.”

So, we thought we’d send our readers on a bit of a scavenger hunt.

Tell us what the first US (not UK) 7″ English Beat single was — A and B side — and you’ll be entered to win your very own copy of Keep The Beat: The Very Best of The English Beat! (Hint: Both songs are on Keep The Beat.)

Three winners at random will be chosen on Tuesday, July 17th, and must have a North American mailing address. Good luck!
