Found Tapes is a weekly show that highlights some of the rarest, weirdest, and sometimes just really cool videos that people send to us. This week, we're heading to Jamaica.

Specifically, to Kingston, to catch up with a young Frederick Nathaniel "Toots" Hibbert of Toots & the Maytals acclaim and cult reggae group The Congos in the flesh. Directed by Emmanuel Bonn and Thiery Deknut, Jam Down actually contains some of the only known early footage of The Congos, performing tracks from their classic roots reggae album Heart Of The Congos, which was produced by Lee Perry at the height of their career at the famed Black Ark studios.

Jam Down originally saw a limited release in France back in 1981, and has since resurfaced as one of reggae's most revered lost artifacts—"the holy grail of reggae films," as it's known. We've got it cued up right here for you, though, so sit back and bear witness to some of the most electrifying, raw reggae performances ever captured.
