Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: All Black Flag fans have their favourite singers, and this provides a side each of the first three. A smashing example of revved up punk rock, with three sides of unreleased studio recordings dating back to early 1978 and a fourth side entitled 'Crass Commercialism', which is a collection of outrageous radio adverts: “I don’t know what I'm gonna do, I've been talking pills all day, I'm SO FUCKED UP. Tomorrow night I think I'm gonna end it all by going to see Black Flag at the Fleetwood on Redondo Beach...It’s gonna cost four dollars, I don’t know where the fuck I'm gonna get it...” You haven’t lived until you've heard this.

JEFF BALE, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #6, JUNE 1983: If you're one of those people (like me) who isn't wildly enthusiastic about BLACK FLAG's current Metal orientation, this set should be like a manna from heaven. It might even be the last B.F. record you'll actually kill to buy. The records include all unreleased material and feature each of their first three vocalists. Keith's ("Johnny's") vocals may be the most distinctive, and Greg's guitar tone might attain the most piercing extremes in the Dez era, but I personally prefer the almost ideal balance achieved during Ron's ("Chavo's") tenure as singer. Enough bullshit, this is a mandatory purchase that demonstrates why B.F. once headed the U.S. punk pantheon, so buy it and pin your ears back.
