i love reggae. not like the kind that Leah Putnam's dad plays. not like the kind in the credits to COPS.
im talking real roots, soulful, old reggae.
a few years ago i scored the Trojan Records BEST OF SKINHEAD REGGAE box set. many people are confused by the notion of "skinhead reggae", but i assure you, its better than most of the crap that you are listening to.
i found this blog that has a link to (what i gather is) every Trojan Records box set. in the past two days ive downloaded 16 hours worth of reggae.
sure, its not punk or hardcore, but its fucking good.

live recordings of hardcore shows are an undertaking thats sketchy at best. especially older ones.
here is a live recording of Chain Of Strength from 1989. i dont know where it was recorded. the sound quality isnt the best, but whatever. they cover "betray" by Minor Threat. crazy.
be warned, it sounds like a bootleg.
