GOVERNMENT ISSUE - Finale, Live at Ritz, NYC and KJFC-FM '88/'89 [.FLAC]

Government Issue was an American hardcore punk band from Washington, D.C. active from 1980 to 1989. The band experienced many changes in membership during its nine-year existence, with singer John Stabb as the only consistent member in an ever-fluctuating lineup that at various times included notable musicians Brian Baker, Mike Fellows, Steve Hansgen, J. Robbins, and Peter Moffett. Government Issue originated from the Washington, D.C. hardcore scene but added elements of heavy metal, New Wave, and psychedelic rock on later records. Though this has caused the band to be sometimes overlooked in relation to other Washington, D.C. hardcore acts, their stylistic diversity made them influential to later punk rock groups.

Thanks for the one but wasn't it a 27 song album (according to discogs)?
Do you post the next set too?

Thanks

Donut it's funny. I ripped from my original CD, in fact in the back cover there are 27 songs, but when I ripped the CD only 13 appears, when I listened too.. maybe it's an error on the back printing or maybe there was another version of the album... Cheers...

Something in the mastering process of the CD went wrong: Track 1 is Strange Wine & Where you live & Blending in (according to the discogs' track sequence) and so it seems to go on with the rest of it: two to three tracks in one file - another mysterie of the world solved!
