This is quite an undertaking. This compilation is a benefit for Anti-Racist Action, and comes with a thick, 72 page booklet in small but readable type packed with lots of great information about the organization and related issues. Very informative in more ways than just band pictures and addresses.
Music-wise this is great; as most of these songs are rare or unreleased, which means some live versions. One of my favorite bands, Discount, has probably the weakest track on here, a live version of “Malories Mission” that suffers from very bad recording. Other than that this is very solid, with tracks from Napalm Death, Fahrenheit 451, Violent Society, Less Than Jake, Better Than a Thousand, Gameface, the Toasters, Ghoti Hook, Good Riddance, Jello Biafra, Citizen Cope, H2O, Citizen Fish, the Suicide Machines, the Bouncing Souls, Mike Park, Ensign, Mephiskapheles, For The Living, Creep Division, Alkaline Trio, the Broadways, and Acumen Nation. Get this and take some time to read the booklet, then get involved!
