Faith – “Live at CBGBs December 26 1981” LP
If this live recording of 1981 had been released back in the day it would sit alongside Husker Du’s Land Speed Record as a testament to the mad ferocity and mid-blowing originality that was first-wave American hardcore. 25 tracks, from two different sets (a support band doing two sets? I don’t know how that works….?), the sound quality is raw, atmospheric, great quality and fucking wild – if you’re a fan of early hardcore this is 100% essential. Have Faith.
