Oh man do I love records, this post, reggae and this guy's blog. I think I might even love you geos, but maybe that's just the anesthesia wearing off.

A whole lot of them look really beat up. I wonder if those few still play?

I love this. The explosion of talent and sheer modernity in 60s and 70s reggae amazes me. It is a great pity that Bob Marley's greatest hits blaring across college campuses is the only time most people get to hear this wonderful music.

I know me a DJ, on the Youu-na-verse-iii-tea rahhhdio, an' him-an-him got him a basket fulla seven inchas, mon. Atta yardsale, mon, I be not lying ta ya and yers. These records be old, old Ska from the DJ wars, and had them labels all ripped up and painted over, mon, so tha odder DJs know not what our man who own this basket back then an' then be playin' even if they be jackin' our man up for he basket, an' they be. Too much fightin' on the dance floor.

Thank you so very much for this link. Photos of records + reggae mp3s? Exactly what I needed for a long weekend.

Why do the zip files contain two of each mp3? They're different size files, but I can't discern any difference between them. Am I just clueless?

Oh, I figured it out.

This is great! Reggae is something that I only ever periodically dip into but it was definitely time I splashed in again.

I left this open in a tab and ignored it, because it seems like whenever people do something like this, they always wind up doing mutt-rips, or terrible quality mp3s, but…but…are these all custom ripped 320k's?

Wow wow wow.
