Nas: Illmatic XX: obviously one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever, one of the best albums ever, period. the remixes on the bonus disc are pretty cool, as is his appearance on the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito show. #nas
I'm not really a bootleg guy, but Neil's tour with Booker T & The MGs was so good, it's a crime that he hasn't put out a live recording yet. This bootleg is a bit sloppy, but is the only recordings I've found of the tour. R.I.P. Donald "Duck" Dunn.
Even way before bands like THE RAMONES, THE DEAD BOYS, and the SEX PISTOLS were heard of, THE DICTATORS (formed in New York City) were making good old-fashioned punk rock music as far back as 1973. Many rock music historians have opined that it was THE DICTATORS who helped define the “proto-punk” genre. After all, it was THE DICTATORS who inspired John Holmstrom and Legs McNeil to create Punk magazine, which later became a “bible” of sorts of the punk rock movement of the late seventies.
