An 8 track LP with music from 33 tours plus two 12 inch 2 track LP's. Epic Vocals dubbed in Europe. Present Arms is the second album by UB40 and was released in 1981. Like their first album Signing Off, Present Arms contained many socially and politically charged lyrics, from the anti-militant title track to 'Sardonicus' which was linked to both President Ronald Regan and Risus sardonicus, an ironic smile on tetanus victims' faces, The UK top-ten hit "One In Ten" was an attack on Thatcherism. The album also touches on a subject very dear to UB40's heart: 'Lamb's Bread' and 'Don't Walk On The Grass' are written as part of the band's longstanding campaign for the legalization of cannabis. Musically, the album continued in the heavy, reverb-drenched, mellifluous style of the debut.
