Seasonal greetings from germany!

Some of oyu will remember that little “project” of mine I started last year...
I called it “German Advent Calendar Goodies” (or GACG), with reference to a
German tradition which goes by the same make it short: by end of
november little kids here in Germany are presented so called “advent calendars”...
usually these are pre-manufactured cardboard boxes that contain 24 little pieces
of chocolate hidden behind 24 tiny little cardboard doors...starting with December
1st the kids may open one door a day, thereby counting down the days until on the
24th, Santa or what we call him, the “Christkind” or the “Weihnachtsmann” comes
and brings the “real” presents...obviously there are no limits when you want to
alter this tradition, a lot of parents (including my wife) make the effort and
create their own unique calendar, taking little canvas bags, attach the numbers
on them and then not only hide chocolate but other goodies, too big to put in
a thin cardboard, my own “virtual” advent calendar last year could
potentially be “opened” by roughly 102,000 people...all you nice (well, most
of them) folks in this community! It contained Reggae music, something I have
been collecting for almost thirty years now. A few months ago I broke through
the “1,000 live shows” barrier. Obviously in these days I could easily double
that number but since I still have the ambition to listen to everything I download
at least once I started to concentrated on quality, rather than quantity, especially
since I am old school when it comes to Reggae... all these “modern” reggae artists
just don’t do it for me and even most of the “original” guys have either disappeared
or taken the commercial road (can’t blame them, though).

Anyway, I got some real nice and warm responses last year so I decided to stick to
the tradition and create another reggae calendar for 2008. In 2007 I did not start
until December 12th or so, this year it will be “the real deal”: 24 shows for
24 days. And since 24 easily divides into 8, I planned to split my seeds into three
different categories: behind the first eight doors you found reggae artists who
are rarely featured here on DIME...for some of them it might even be the first time
ever...the mid section of the calendar which we are in right now will present better
known bands and singers with some rather rare or at least special concerts...and as
we close in on Christmas you may expect a “simple” best of complation, nothing rare,
nothing special (at least not for the die hard collectors), just great musicians
with great shows in superb (for Reggae standards) quality.

Today's concert features ZIGGY MARLEY & THE MELODY MAKERS at a time when they were
still regugarly performing as a group of BOB'S children. 1991 is also the year when
they released their I believe 5th studio album "Jahmekya" - and when they started to go
crap (IMHO). As good as its predecessor "One Bright Day" was, as much sucked "Jahmekya"...
again: only in my humble opinion. Anyway, because of that this was the fourth and last
time I saw them live, this upload here is a direct copy from my master tape. According
to eTree there is no complete show from 1991 circulating, so now you'll get one
