Released after Bradley's 1996 death to help finish out Sublime's contract, Second Hand smoke is a collection of remixes and previously unreleased studio material, most of which had been floating around on bootlegs since around 1995.

Get Out! was originally on Sublime's debut album but had to be pulled because of illegal sampling from "an old English burnout band" (Led Zeppelin, The Lemon Song, which incidentally had lyrics stolen from Robert Johnson). It might be the most straightforward example of Sublime's style, a combination of reggae, rap, funk, and good times.
There's the original version of Don't Push, far superior than the 40 Oz. take.

Honestly, a lot of this album is worthless. There are demos that shouldn't ever be. But there's also a good portion of the record that represent peak points for Sublime.
Thanx dub would be an example. It's a basic minor reggae jam that Bradley improvises beautifully on

He was no guitar god but this song is evidence that he could, indeed, get down and funky when he wanted to.
New Realization is the second oldest recording of the band, I think, from 1987 or 1988. It's a regular acoustic strumming-backed pop tune with fun lyrics and is an enjoyable song.

There's more to this disc than what I've mentioned and I'd reccomend it to anyone who's interested in the band. You might wind up ignorning certain portions of it but it's still a good purchase.
