VA - 20 Years of Dischord
 

20 Years of Dischord is an introspective look at the 20 year history of the influential DC punk label. Bundled inside is a 3 CD set containing one song from every band from the label's past and present and 23 unreleased and rare tracks for a grand total of 73 songs. The first disc highlights the beginnings of a burgeoning scene and the earliest bands to be released on the label, which were essentially short-lived and simplistic hardcore outfits. Disc two is a look at how both the label and music have evolved over the years, moving on from hardcore to more complex, provocative and mature material. The last CD contains rare and unreleased material from several bands, and also includes 6 short video segements of some of the earliest DC bands like Void and SOA. To top it all off there is a 134 page booklet with pictures of every band and explanations on what they did for the scene and why their songs were included. For 25 bucks, this is an excellent compilation highlighting one of America's prominent punk labels and the many great bands that have been a part of the DC scene over the years.
