The Beat or The English Beat broke up in 1983. The band’s vocalists Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger assembled keyboardist Mickey Billingham from Dexy’s Midnight Runners, guitarist Mick Jones from The Clash, bassist Horace Panter from The Specials and drummer Stoker from Dexy’s Midnight Runners and they began recording as General Public. The song “Tenderness” came from their debut LP ‘All the Rage’ and was also featured on the soundtracks of the films Weird Science and Clueless. This promo 12” features the Radio Version and Dance Mix of the group’s first US Top 40 hit.
