This isn’t a before & after of the engine filter but the cabin (inside) air filter from the Mazda5 I bought new in ’08. It’s only got 50k miles and it isn’t really driven in extreme conditions, so I wasn’t really expecting such a dirty filter when I decided to change it this weekend.
Chances are yours hasn’t ever been changed, and chances are really good that there’s a youtube video showing you exactly how to do it, so get to it mr. lazy.
This guy has put together a bunch of rare roots reggae and ska compilations made entirely from his personal collection of 45s. He’s got a lot of versions I’d never heard before. Here are some of my faves, most from the mid ’70s.
I owe an apology to Toots Hibbard. I devour any and all things reggae, but I’ve never really had a hankering for he and his Maytals. I read the great Reggae Routes years ago and the authors flat out stated time and time again that beside Bob Marley (who is #1 in everyone’s book) Toots & the Maytals are the rulers, period. They made a strong case for their love, but I just couldn’t agree… even after seeing Toots’s amazing live show more than once.
But I’ve finally come around after listening to this guy’s collection of Maytals rarities. Below is a ska number in which Toots sings about going straight to university hospital because he’s got a belly ache. Makes me appreciate 54-46 (That’s My Number) all the more. Toots really IS number one… I mean number two.
