Released: 17 April 1984
Break Down The Door!
The most important single release since 'Ghost Town' demanding the release of Mandela from jail, became an anthem across the globe. It also marked something of a reunion to the label for Lynval Golding, Elvis Costello (who produced), Ranking Roger & Dave Wakeling. Caron Wheeler also featured on the single, who later carried the vocal on Soul II Soul's 'Back To Life' hit.
The song was recorded in a record four days and reached no. 9 in the UK charts.
Nelson Mandela was of course subsequently released in 1990, and Jerry Dammers was directly involved in the Artist Against Aparthied concert in Wembley statium in 1988.
