Brave New World 12" (1988)

Ultra rare release from this California band. I can't tell you a single thing about them.
A couple of okay reggae songs on the B-side but the A-side is amazingly good. I can't believe this isn't a popular song.

A - Hard Yard
B1 - I Wanna See You (Dance)
B2 - Yes I Love You

I.D. - I Have Something to Say to You 7'' (1984) [LINK FIXED]

I'm pretty sure this band was from Canada. Can't find anything about them online. I know this record goes for a pretty penny on eBay every now and then and I'll admit that it's not a ska song even though when you do see it on eBay on those rare occasions the seller likes to say that it's a ska song. It's a piano driven new wave song with a bit of a ska rhythm to it and I shouldn't be posting it on T&W but I am because of how rare it is and because of how good it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

A - I Have Something to Say to You
B - Sonyman Walking

Eddie Vedder - Reggae EP

A - Reggae Woman
B1 - Redemption Song (Pearl Jam live)
B2 - Three Little Birds (Pearl Jam live)

"Reggae Woman" is a song Eddie Vedder wrote in 1988. This version was recorded before he was in Pearl Jam. The other two songs here are just Eddie singing solo in between Pearl Jam songs. These are both Bob Marley songs and they are basically a capella, no reggae music behind him. The other members of Pearl Jam don't share his love for that reggae groove it seems.
