Near the top of my list for favorite Boston hardcore bands is SSD. While I think their "Get It Away" album is way better, I decided to post their first album "The Kids Will Have Their Say".
From the iconic front cover shot, to the joint release with D.C. label Dischord, to the opener "Boiling Point", this album crushes.
I scored this off ebay a few years ago before things blew up with the movie "American Hardcore". It actually wasn't too hard to get or too expensive, it's just that there are so many bootlegs out there you have to be careful when buying off ebay sight unseen. The ExClaim/Discord boot is the one that keeps popping up everywhere. I found one last week in a local record store in the new releases section.
Anyway, what seems to be difficult these days is finding one with an original insert.
It was a shame to see what happened with SSD later on with albums like "How We Rock" and "Break It Up", but I am starting to think that deep down most Boston bands of that era (DYS, Gang Green, The FU's) just wanted to be Aerosmith. Dream On indeed.
