of the two barry brown, i would say its no contest, get the showcase one even though its on a dodgy label. the moll selekta one seems to have a good track list but in reality i thought it sounded very weak, the sound isnt mixed well and it just kinda drags on.

for the don carlos one, i would say forget the first one...its great material but you should look for the original (?) release on burning sounds or csa or whatever label it was on...called "spread out" if i recall correctly. this one you mention looks like yet another crap bootleg. "...credential" on the other hand is a first rate release and is a must-have. i believe the cd has numerous bonus tracks (maybe not though, not near my records to check it) but even without them its one of, if not the, best don carlos albums around.

now back to our normal bickering about who has cred and who doesnt.

one love

"this one you mention looks like yet another crap bootleg."

Juha just cleared out the 'Get Back' question on teh BAF board. Not likely a bootleg according to that.

One love,

Yeah, seems that reggae-related, non-Cali-related posts don't survive so well here...
