I found the perfect sight you can get music. You don't get albums but you can get ANY music. I found David Allan Coe and Johnny Rebel. Go to mp3va

If Discogs wants to ban stuff like this, why doesn’t it ban someone like Askari X that is also openly racist and talks about killing people because of the color of their skin. As of right now, Ward of State by Askari X is still up for sale. Double standard much?

Scum like Johnny Rebel only could have existed in the old days. His songs are undoubtedly catchy, but it’s impossible to defend the horrid content of the lyrics. I hope he rots in Hell.

Much like Eddie Noack, C. J. Trahan was a country music outsider who desperately wanted to become an insider. But while Noack found his niche singing serial killer songs, Trahan found his singing racist drivel. The guy spent 20 years recording normal rockabilly and country music without even a minor hit, it wasn't until he started with the segregation tunes that he had any success. And what a success it was, given that white supremacist slobs the world over have kept these recordings in print ever since.

It's a shame that a talented artist ended up going in that direction. And he really was talented, his earlier and later tunes are great - but if it wasn't for the Rebel releases nobody would have heard of him. He wanted to get famous and he did. I'm not here to defend the disgusting content of these songs, I just find his story really fascinating. It's one of those stories that could only have happened in a really specific time and place in music history!

Why is Discogs censoring what we can buy and sell? It's still music and an art form and the vinyl does exist. It's a shame that somebody chooses to deny another person from enjoying these records just because they disagree with the content. Sad world we live in. Enough censorship already. What next? Denying the existence of these records?

This is low-brow stuff, a reflection of the culture whom it was made by and designed for. If one were to seek out the nadir of human culture one would be advised to start here. Conjures up visions of trailer parks, moonshine and lynching. Kinda like an evil and real Squid Billies.

I do find it humorous that these rah! rah! white supremacist types are generally not the kind of people whom any "race" would hold up as the standard bearers.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. disagreers, feel free to reply and let me know what there is to disagree about with my review. Let me guess Trahan was joking? Please!
