AllMusic Review by

A live album culled from Special Beat's 1995 tour of Japan, Gangsters finds the group running through a mixture of Specials and English Beat classics. Since it features many of the songs popularized by the members' former groups, it's a bit redundant -- especially in light of the fact that Special Beat themselves have already released two LPs with very similar selections, and the same three songs lead off all three albums. Stick with the original recordings by the original groups.
