Chain Of Strength - Best Of Times


Chain Of Strength - What Holds Us Apart cover shot from The Anthrax, Norwalk CT, Photo courtesy of Dan Rawe

You might have seen some of these classic photos from Chain Of Strength's "What Holds Us Apart" 7" or through Dan Rawe's Flickr account, either way, here they are once again and all in one place. As for the back story on these photos, they come from the collection of Dan Rawe, who was apart of Foundation Records in the late 80's early 90's and acquired them through his work with the label. Dan gave us the go ahead to post these here, but I will say that neither us nor Dan is clear on the photo credit for all the photos. If you dig Chain like DCXX digs Chain, you'll appreciate this. Those were special times, those were our times... -Tim DCXX

Why is it that there are hardly any pictures of Curtis full frontal?
(no homo)

The only ones are the pics taken in 2007 at that book release.
